In general, image sensor noise is dominated by Poisson statistics, even at high illumination level, yet most standard denoising procedures often assume a simpler additive Gaussian noise, which is in fact a poor approximation. Fortunately, Poisson noise can under some circumstances be simplified via variance stabilizing methods, such as the Anscombe transform, which is well known to statisticians, medical imaging specialists and astronomers. However, in order to use such a procedure effectively… CONTINUE READING
