Abstract
In this paper, a speckle noise reduction method is presented. The proposed method is based on a combination of nonlinear anisotropic diffusion filter and Ensemble Empirical Mode Decomposition (EEMD) technique. It incorporates the advantages of the two techniques. The experimental results on the images speckled by various levels of noise show that the proposed method is able to significantly improve the performance of nonlinear anisotropic diffusion filter. Furthermore, it outperforms several well-known speckle reduction algorithms in terms of noise removal as well as image features preservation.
