We present a new impulsive noise removal method, which combines a switching mechanism and adaptive weighted median filtering techniques. By utilizing four Laplacian operators and median-based comparison techniques to classify the image pixels into thin-line pixels, noise-free pixels, and noisy ones, the developed solution applies adaptive weighted median filtering operations only in the detected noisy locations to suppress impulsive noise, and keeps the other pixels unchanged. The simulation results exhibit the excellent performance gains of the proposed solution in suppressing impulsive noise with different contamination ratios over other prior-art methods in terms of both objective measurements and visual image quality.
