Abstract -
It is still a challenging problem for researchers to remove noise from medical image. To remove Noise from the images is not easy. Several algorithms are published and each approach has its advantages, and limitations. This paper presents some significant work in the area of image denoising and finds the one is better for image denoising. From the introduction we can conclude that the Multiwavelet Soft Thresholding technique is the best technique for image denoising. In this method Penalized method gives better result and performance.
