Filtering-Based Noise Estimation for Denoising the Image Degraded by Gaussian Noise
In this paper, a denoising algorithm for the Gaussian noise image using filtering-based estimation is presented. To adaptively deal with variety of the amount of noise corruption, the algorithm initially estimates the noise density from the degraded image. The standard deviation of the noise is computed from the different images between the noisy input and its’ pre-filtered version. In addition, the modified Gaussian noise removal filter based on the local statistics such as local weighted mean, local weighted activity and local maximum is flexibly used to control the degree of noise suppression. Experimental results show the superior performance of the proposed filter algorithm compared to the other standard algorithms in terms of both subjective and objective evaluations.
