Paper Abstract

A new interpolation method based on multi-resolution technique is presented and used for medical image zooming. The aim of this work is to focus on similarity analysis of adjacent sub-bands provided by Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) to enhance the accuracy of the interpolation. First, decompose the original image into sub-bands by the DWT; second, consider the similarity between adjacent sub-bands to calculate the high frequency components; third, use the original image as the low frequency component and apply the inverse DWT to obtain the final interpolation result. Experimental results on magnetic resonance (MR) images and positron emission tomography (PET) images illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
