1 EE465: Introduction to Digital Image Processing1 Limitation of Imaging Technology Two plagues in image acquisition Noise interference Blur (motion, out-of-focus, hazy weather) Difficult to obtain high-quality images as imaging goes Beyond visible spectrum Micro-scale (microscopic imaging) Macro-scale (astronomical imaging)

2 What is Noise? Wiki definition: noise means any unwanted signal One person’s signal is another one’s noise Noise is not always random and randomness is an artificial term Noise is not always bad (see stochastic resonance example in the next slide) EE465: Introduction to Digital Image Processing2

3 Stochastic Resonance EE465: Introduction to Digital Image Processing3 no noiseheavy noise light noise

4 EE465: Introduction to Digital Image Processing4 Image Denoising Where does noise come from? Sensor (e.g., thermal or electrical interference) Environmental conditions (rain, snow etc.) Why do we want to denoise? Visually unpleasant Bad for compression Bad for analysis

5 EE465: Introduction to Digital Image Processing5 electrical interference Noisy Image Examples thermal imaging ultrasound imaging physical interference

6 EE465: Introduction to Digital Image Processing6 (Ad-hoc) Noise Modeling Simplified assumptions Noise is independent of signal Noise types Independent of spatial location Impulse noise Additive white Gaussian noise Spatially dependent Periodic noise

7 EE465: Introduction to Digital Image Processing7 Noise Removal Techniques Linear filtering Nonlinear filtering Recall Linear system

8 EE465: Introduction to Digital Image Processing8 Image Denoising Introduction Impulse noise removal Median filtering Additive white Gaussian noise removal 2D convolution and DFT Periodic noise removal Band-rejection and Notch filter

9 EE465: Introduction to Digital Image Processing9 Impulse Noise (salt-pepper Noise) Definition Each pixel in an image has the probability of p/2 (0

10 EE465: Introduction to Digital Image Processing10 Numerical Example P= X Y Noise level p=0.1 means that approximately 10% of pixels are contaminated by salt or pepper noise (highlighted by red color)

11 EE465: Introduction to Digital Image Processing11 MATLAB Command >Y = IMNOISE(X,'salt & pepper',p) Notes:  The intensity of input images is assumed to be normalized to [0,1]. If X is double, you need to do normalization first, i.e., X=X/255; If X is uint8, MATLAB would do the normalization automatically  The default value of p is 0.05 (i.e., 5 percent of pixels are contaminated)  imnoise function can produce other types of noise as well (you need to change the noise type ‘ salt & pepper ’ )

12 EE465: Introduction to Digital Image Processing12 Impulse Noise Removal Problem Noisy image Y filtering algorithm Can we make the denoised image X as close to the noise-free image X as possible? ^ X ^ denoised image

13 EE465: Introduction to Digital Image Processing13 Median Operator Given a sequence of numbers {y 1, …,y N } Mean: average of N numbers Min: minimum of N numbers Max: maximum of N numbers Median: half-way of N numbers Example sorted

14 EE465: Introduction to Digital Image Processing14 y(n) W=2T+1 1D Median Filtering …… Note: median operator is nonlinear MATLAB command: x=median(y(n-T:n+T));

15 EE465: Introduction to Digital Image Processing15 Numerical Example T=1: Boundary Padding

16 EE465: Introduction to Digital Image Processing16 x(m,n) W:(2T+1)-by-(2T+1) window 2D Median Filtering MATLAB command: x=medfilt2(y,[2*T+1,2*T+1]);

17 EE465: Introduction to Digital Image Processing17 Numerical Example Y X ^ Sorted: [0, 0, 0, 225, 225, 225, 226, 226, 226]

18 EE465: Introduction to Digital Image Processing18 Image Example P=0.1 Noisy image YX ^ denoised image 3-by-3 window

19 EE465: Introduction to Digital Image Processing19 Image Example (Con ’ t) 3-by-3 window5-by-5 window clean noisy (p=0.2)

20 EE465: Introduction to Digital Image Processing20 Reflections What is good about median operation? Since we know impulse noise appears as black (minimum) or white (maximum) dots, taking median effectively suppresses the noise What is bad about median operation? It affects clean pixels as well Noticeable edge blurring after median filtering

21 EE465: Introduction to Digital Image Processing21 Idea of Improving Median Filtering Can we get rid of impulse noise without affecting clean pixels? Yes, if we know where the clean pixels are or equivalently where the noisy pixels are How to detect noisy pixels? They are black or white dots

22 EE465: Introduction to Digital Image Processing22 Median Filtering with Noise Detection Noisy image Y x=medfilt2(y,[2*T+1,2*T+1]); Median filtering Noise detection C=(y==0)|(y==255); xx=c.*x+(1-c).*y; Obtain filtering results

23 EE465: Introduction to Digital Image Processing23 Image Example clean noisy (p=0.2) w/o noise detection with noise detection

24 EE465: Introduction to Digital Image Processing24 Image Denoising Introduction Impulse noise removal Median filtering Additive white Gaussian noise removal 2D convolution and DFT Periodic noise removal Band-rejection and Notch filter

25 EE465: Introduction to Digital Image Processing25 Additive White Gaussian Noise Definition Each pixel in an image is disturbed by a Gaussian random variable With zero mean and variance  2 X: noise-free image, Y: noisy image Note: unlike impulse noise situation, every pixel in the image contaminated by AWGN is noisy

26 EE465: Introduction to Digital Image Processing26 Numerical Example  2 =1 XY

27 EE465: Introduction to Digital Image Processing27 MATLAB Command >Y = IMNOISE(X, ’ gaussian',m,v) >Y = X+m+randn(size(X))*v; or Note: rand() generates random numbers uniformly distributed over [0,1] randn() generates random numbers observing Gaussian distribution N(0,1)

28 EE465: Introduction to Digital Image Processing28 Image Denoising Noisy image Y filtering algorithm Question: Why not use median filtering? Hint: the noise type has changed. X ^ denoised image
