Suman Yaduwanshi , Jagroop Singh Sidhu. "Application of Bacterial Foraging Optimisation as a De - noising filter". International Journal of Engineering Trends and Technology (IJETT). V4(7):3049-3055 Jul 2013. ISSN:2231-5381. published by seventh sense research group.


De - noising of image still a concerned for researchers working in this area. It is further challenging in case of medical images mainly images of the internal organs. Various digital filters have been developed and tried by researchers to provide ideal solutio n in the de - noising of medical images. In the present paper the authors present a Soft Computing approach to de - noise the medical images. Bacterial Foraging Optimisation which is a bio - inspired algorithm is used as filter to de - noise medical images like CT - Scan and MRI of pancreas. The performance metrics like MSE and PSNR are calculated which show that Bacterial Foraging Optimisation can act as potential tool for de - noising images.
