Denosing 3D Ultrasound Images by Non-local Means Accelerated by GPU

Abstract

In Ultrasound imaging, speckle noise is the most serious problem which affects the performance of images. Non-local mean filter is a nice method to remove the speckle noise, but the algorithm' computational complexity makes it's a highly time-consuming method. In many applications like image-guided surgical intervention, real-time de-noising is required… (More)
