Abstract
In this paper, a curvelet-based noise suppression bilinear interpolation method for low-dose CT images is proposed. Curvelets provide a multidirectional and multiscale decomposition that has been mathematically shown to represent distributed discontinuities such as edges better than traditional wavelets. Because the traditional linear interpolation results in boundary fuzziness in interpolated images, combined with the advantages of curvelet transform, here we propose a curvelet-based modified bilinear interpolation to improve the accuracy of interpolation. Extensive experiments indicate that the proposed method can effectively improve the quality of the obtained target image based on low-dose CT images and the produced slice image is similar to original slice image.
