Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present an adaptive contrast enhancement (ACE) method in which the contrast gain is determined by mapping the local standard deviation (LSD) histogram of an image to a Gaussian distribution function. The contrast gain is nonlinearly adjusted to avoid noise overenhancement and ringing artifacts while improving the detail contrast with less computational loading. The effectiveness of our method is demonstrated with radiological images.
