Abstract:
We introduce a continuous scale wavelet detector. Our algorithm was able to detect a mass that could not be seen using conventional windowing and leveling or traditional methods of contrast enhancement. An artifact free enhancement algorithm based on overcomplete multiscale wavelet analysis is then presented. The novelty of this algorithm lies in its detection of directional features and removal of unwanted perturbations.
