    DPSF: a Novel Dual-Parametric Sigmoid Function for Optical Coherence Tomography Image Enhancement

    Speckle noise reduces the image contrast significantly making the highly scattering structures boundaries difficult to distinguish. This has limited the usage of optical coherence tomography (OCT) images in clinical routine and hindered its potential by depriving clinicians from assessing useful information that are needed in disease monitoring, treatment, progression, and decision making. To overcome this limitation, we propose a fast and robust OCT image enhancement framework using non-linear statistical parametric technique. In the proposed framework, we utilize prior statistical information to model the image to follow Gaussian distribution. After which, a newly designed dual-parametric sigmoid function (DPSF) is utilized to ...
