A generalized version of the iterative conditional modes (ICM) method for image enhancement is developed. The proposed algorithm utilizes the characteristic of Markov random fields (MRF) in modeling the contextual information embedded in image formation. To cope with real images, a new local MRF model with a second-order neighborhood is introduced. This model extracts contextual information not only from the intensity levels but also from the relative position of neighboring cliques. Also, an… CONTINUE READING
