Experiments on geometric image enhancement

Conference Paper

In this paper we experiments with geometric algorithms for image smoothing. Examples are given for MRI and ATR data. We emphasize experiments with the affine invariant geometric smoother or affine heat equation, originally developed for binary shape smoothing, and found to be efficient for gray-level images as well. Efficient numerical implementations of these flows give anisotropic diffusion processes which preserve edges.
