Three algorithms for digital processing of X-ray images were considered: correction of X-ray background based on subtraction of the distortion function, locally-adaptive equalization of histogram, and image detail contrast enhancement. The developed methods were tested in samples of microfocus X-ray images. All three methods were shown to provide satisfactory image processing.
