Abstract
Total variation(TV) based on regularization has been proven as a popular and effective model for image restoration, because of its ability of edge preserved. However, as the TV favors a piece-wise constant solution, the processing results in the flat regions of the image are easily produced "staircase effects", and the amplitude of the edges will be underestimated; the underlying cause of the problem is that the regularization parameter can not be changeable with spatial local information of image. In this paper, we propose a novel Scatter-matrix eigenvalues-based TV(SMETV) regularization with image blind restoration algorithm for deblurring medical images. The spatial information in different image regions is incorporated into regularization by using the edge indicator called difference eigenvalue to distinguish edges from flat areas. The proposed algorithm can effectively reduce the noise in flat regions as well as preserve the edge and detailed information. Moreover, it becomes more robust with the change of the regularization parameter. Extensive experiments demonstrate that the proposed approach produces results superior to most methods in both visual image quality and quantitative measures.
