Paper Abstract

Majority of image filtering techniques are designed under assumption that noise is of special, a priori known type and it is i.i.d., i.e. spatially uncorrelated. However, in many practical situations the latter assumption is not true due to several reasons. Moreover, spatial correlation properties of noise might be rather different and a priori unknown. Then the assumption that noise is i.i.d. under real conditions of spatially correlated noise commonly leads to considerable decrease of a used filter effectiveness in comparison to a case if this spatial correlation is taken into account. Our paper deals with two basic aspects. The first one is how to modify a denoising algorithm, in particular, a discrete cosine transform (DCT) based filter in order to incorporate a priori or preliminarily obtained knowledge of spatial correlation characteristics of noise. The second aspect is how to estimate spatial correlation characteristics of noise for a given image with appropriate accuracy and robustness under condition that there is some a priori information about, at least, noise type and statistics like variance (for additive noise case) or relative variance (for multiplicative noise). We also present simulation results showing the effectiveness (the benefit) of taking into consideration noise correlation properties.
