Despeckle filtering algorithms and software for ultrasound imaging
Christos P. Loizou and Constantinos S. Pattichis

Published 2008 by Morgan & Claypool Publishers in San Rafael, Calif (1537 Fourth Street, San Rafael, CA 94901 USA) .
Written in English.

About the Book

It is well-known that speckle is a multiplicative noise that degrades image quality and the visual evaluation in ultrasound imaging. This necessitates the need for robust despeckling techniques for both routine clinical practice and teleconsultation. The goal for this book is to introduce the theoretical background (equations), the algorithmic steps, and the MATLAB (TM) code for the following group of despeckle filters: linear filtering, nonlinear filtering, anisotropic diffusion filtering and wavelet filtering. The book proposes a comparative evaluation framework of these despeckle filters based on texture analysis, image quality evaluation metrics, and visual evaluation by medical experts, in the assessment of cardiovascular ultrasound images recorded from the carotid artery.
