Medical image denoising based on dictionary learning

Images are widely used in medical engineering. Medical imaging devices are inevitable to introduce noises to medical images. It is important to eliminate noises in medical images. To denoise the images more effectively, this paper proposes an improved image denoising method based on dictionary learning. It introduced the image size and pixel distribution to define a new iteration more reasonably. When the iteration function is called, the threshold is properly compressed. The results show that the effect of dictionary updating is better, and that it improves the effect of noise reduction and greatly reduces the computing time consumed, in comparison to those of the KSVD and MOD algorithms. Therefore, it has the potential application value in medical image processing.
