Abstract
This paper proposes a filtering method for high-density impulse noise removal based on the fuzzy mathematical morphology using t-norms. The method is a two phased method. In the first phase, an impulse noise detector based on the fuzzy top-hat transforms is used to identify pixels which are likely to be contaminated by noise. In the second phase, the image is restored using a specialized regularization method using fuzzy open-close or fuzzy close-open sequences applied only to those selected contaminated pixels and applying then a block smart erase algorithm. Experimental results show that the proposed algorithm presents a better performance in terms of edge preservation and noise suppression than other nonlinear filtering methods, including the presented in [1], in which this method is based on.
