Edge Enhancement and Filtering of Medical Ultrasonic Images Using a Hybrid Method

Abstract

A hybrid method based on anisotropic diffusion (AD) is proposed for ultrasound speckle suppression and edge enhancement. This method is designed to utilize the different denoising properties of three techniques: median filtering, improved AD filtering and isotropic diffusion filtering. The gradient matrix is analyzed, and thresholds are chosen by… (More)
