Title: Parameter optimization for local polynomial approximation based intersection confidence interval filter using genetic algorithm: an application for brain MRI image de-noising
Issue Date: 2015
Abstract: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is extensively exploited for more accuratepathological changes as well as diagnosis. Conversely, MRI suffers from variousshortcomings such as ambient noise from the environment, acquisition noise from theequipment, the presence of background tissue, breathing motion, body fat, etc.Consequently, noise reduction is critical as diverse types of the generated noise limit the efficiency of the medical image diagnosis. Local polynomial approximation basedintersection confidence interval (LPA-ICI) filter is one of the effective de-noising filters.This filter requires an adjustment of the ICI parameters for efficient window size selection.From the wide range of ICI parametric values, finding out the best set of tunes values is itselfan optimization problem. The present study proposed a novel technique for parameteroptimization of LPA-ICI filter using genetic algorithm (GA) for brain MR imagesde-noising. The experimental results proved that the proposed method outperforms theLPA-ICI method for de-noising in terms of various performance metrics for different noisevariance levels. Obtained results reports that the ICI parameter values depend on the noisevariance and the concerned under test image.
