Image Restoration Using Blur Invariants In Wavelet Transform

Abstract

Image restoration is an important issue in high-level image processing. Images are often degraded during the data acquisition process. The degradation may involve blurring, information loss due to sampling, quantization effects, and various sources of noise. The purpose of image restoration is to estimate the original image from the degraded data. It is widely used in various fields of applications, such as medical imaging, astronomical imaging, remote sensing, microscopy imaging, photography deblurring, and forensic science, etc. Images are produced to record or display useful information. Due to imperfections in the imaging and capturing process, however, the recorded image invariably represents a degraded version of the original scene. The undoing of these an imperfection is crucial to many of the subsequent image processing tasks. There exists a wide range of different degradations, which are to be taken into account, for instance noise, geometrical degradations (pincushion distortion), illumination and color imperfections (under/overexposure, saturation), and blur. Blurring is a form of bandwidth reduction of an ideal image owing to the imperfect image formation process. It can be caused by relative motion between the camera and the original scene, or by an optical system that is out of focus. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________
