Paper Abstract

A nonlinear masking technique has been developed which characterizes digital images by local measures of the median and the median absolute deviation (MAD). Space-variant enhancement is elicited by modifying the local MAD as calculated over a moving window in the original image. The method is found to be effective in edge enhancement and noise cleaning operations.
