Medical image processing methods including image restoration and enhancement methods are very useful for effective visual examination and computerized analysis. Image processing methods enhance features of interest for better analysis and characterization. Though there have been more advanced model-based image processing methods investigated and developed recently, this chapter presents the principles of selected basic image processing methods. Advanced image processing and reconstruction methods are described in other chapters in this book.
