Abstract

Speckle is a primary factor which degrades the contrast resolution and masks the meaningful texture information present in an ultrasound image. Its presence severely hampers the interpretation and analysis of ultrasound images. Speckle noise is produced by the mutual interference of a set of scattered wavefronts. Depending on the phase of the wavefronts, the interference may be constructive or destructive resulting in brighter or darker pixels. The proposed filter is based on steps to attenuate the resultant brighter and darker pixels. Anisotropic diffusion minimizes the noise fluctuation while simultaneously preserving the edges of the image.In this paper, a detailed description of Modified kernel Anisotropic diffusion despeckle filter(MKAD) is proposed. MKAD performance is compared with 5 other diffusion filters in medical ultrasound quantitatively and functionally. The proposed filter has presented the greatest structural similarity, 0.95.For better analysis, field II simulation is done on ultrasound images.
