Abstract

Ultrasound is widely used modalities in medical imaging. Ultrasound imaging is used in cardiology, obstetrics, gynecology, abdominal imaging, etc. Almost ultrasound image contains some noise, poor contrast. This paper describes a method to denoise ultrasound image based context awareness in bandelet domain. Our proposed method uses bandelet filters to remove noise in ultrasound images. For demonstrating the superiority of the proposed method, we have compared the results with the other recent methods available in literature.
