Sensor Signal Perfecting, Image Restoration, Reconstruction and Enhancement

  • Leonid Yaroslavsky


Imaging systems always have certain technical limitations in their design and implementations and generate images that are not as perfect as they would be if there were no implementation limitations. Deviations of real images from perfect ones may be treated as distortions introduced by imaging systems to hypothetical perfect, or “ ideal” signals. Correction of these distortions is the primary goal of image processing.
