Advances in digital image processing, the advents of multimedia computing, and the availability of affordable high quality digital cameras have led to increased demand for digital images/videos. There has been a fast growth in the number of information systems that benefit from digital imaging techniques and present many tough challenges. In this paper e are concerned with applications for which image quality is a critical requirement. The fields of medicine, remote sensing, real time surveillance, and image-based automatic fingerprint/face identification systems are all but few examples of such applications. Medical care is increasingly dependent on imaging for diagnostics, surgery, and education. It is estimated that medium size hospitals in the US generate terabytes of MRI images and X-Ray images are generated to be stored in very large databases which are frequently accessed and searched for research and training. On the other hand, the rise of international terrorism and the growth of identity theft have added urgency to the development of new efficient biometric-based person verification/authentication systems. In future, such systems can provide an additional layer of security for online transactions or for real-time surveillance.
