Paper Abstract

This paper proposes a new method to denoise images corrupted by Poisson noise. Poisson noise is signal-dependent, and consequently, separating signals from noise is a very difficult task. In most current Poisson noise reduction algorithms, noise signal are pre-processed to approximate Gaussian noise, and then denoised by a conventional Gaussian denoising algorithm. In this paper, we propose to use adaptive basis functions derived from the data using modified ICA (Independent Component Analysis), and a maximum likelihood shrinkage algorithm based on the property of Poisson noise. This modified ICA method is based on a denoising method called "Sparse Code Shrinkage (SCS)" and wavelet-domain denoising. In denoising procedure of ICA-domain, the shrinkage function is determined by the property of Poisson noise that adapts to the intensity of signal. The performance of the proposed algorithm is validated with simulated data experiments, and the results demonstrate that the algorithm greatly improves the denoising performance in images contaminated by Poisson noise.
