The purpose of this paper is to introduce a fast automated whitenoise estimation method which gives reliable estimates in images with smooth and textured areas. This method is a block-based method that takes image structure into account and uses a measure other than the variance to determine if a block is homogeneous. It uses no thresholds and automates the way that blockbased methods stop the averaging of block variances. The proposed method selects intensity-homogeneous blocks in an image by… CONTINUE READING
