Abstract
Denoising is the primary preprocessing step before subsequent clinical diagnostic analysis of MRI data. Common patch-based denoising methods rely heavily on the degree of patch matching, which limits their performance by the necessity of finding sufficiently similar patches. In this paper, we propose a global filtering framework, in which each voxel is restored with information from the whole 3D image. This global filter is not restricted to any specific patchbased filter, as it is a low-rank approximation using the Nyström method combined with a low sampling rate and a kmeans clustering adaptive sampling scheme. Experiments demonstrate that this method utilizes information effectively from the whole image for denoising, and the framework can be applied on top of most patch-based methods to further improve the performance.
