Despeckle Filtering for Ultrasound Imaging and Video, Volume II, 2nd Edition Despeckle Filtering for Ultrasound Imaging and Video, Volume II, 2nd Edition
Christos P. Loizou, Constantinos S. Pattichis
In ultrasound imaging and video visual perception is hindered by speckle multiplicative noise that degrades the quality. Noise reduction is therefore essential for improving the visual observation quality or as a pre-processing step for further autom...
