This paper describes a 3D laser scanner for dental cast that realize non-contact deepness measuring. The scanner and the control PC make up of a 3D scan system, accomplish the real time digital of dental cast. Owing to the complexity shape of the dental cast and the random nature of scanned points, the detected feature curves are generally not smooth or not accurate enough for subsequent application. The purpose of this p is to present an algorithm for enhancing the useful points and eliminating the noises. So an image enhancement algorithm based on wavelet transform and fuzzy set theory is presented. Firstly, the multi-scale wavelet transform is adopted to decompose the input image, which extracts the characteristic of multi-scale of the image. Secondly, wavelet threshold is used for image de-noising, and then the traditional fuzzy set theory is improved and applied to enhance the low frequency wavelet coefficients and the high frequency wavelet coefficients of different directions of each scale. Finally, the inverse wavelet transform is applied to synthesis image. A group of experimental results demonstrate that the proposed algorithm is effective for the dental cast image de-noising and enhancement, the edge of the enhanced image is distinct which is good for the subsequent image processing.
