Implementation of Medical Image Enhancement Technique using Gabor Filter
Pages : 251-255
Significant improvement in contrast of masses along with the suppression of background tissues is obtained by tuning the parameters of the proposed transformation function in the specified range. The early detection of the cancer is a challenging problem, due to the structure of the cancer cells. The manual analysis of the sputum samples is time consuming, inaccurate and requires intensive trained person to avoid diagnostic errors. The segmentation results will be used as a base for a Computer Aided Diagnosis (CAD) system for early detection of cancer, which improves the chances of survival for the patient. In this paper, we proposed gabor filter for enhancement of medical images. It is a very good enhancement tool for medical images.
