Paper Abstract

A heuristic algorithm was designed and tested which allows for the computer generation of optimal preprocessing filter sequences for any class of image data. This method was employed in the search for an ideal technique of preprocessing echocardiographic image data prior to edge detection. The method appears potentially capable of producing efficient preprocessing sequences for this image class when compared to other widely used preprocessing methods. Furthermore, the search algorithm appears to be an acceptable way to reduce the infinitely large search space of convolution masks with various filtering properties.
