Abstract: Ultrasound images are used most popularly in medical image processing. The real time, low cost, non-invasive, no radiation features of ultrasound images make it useful for medical image processing applications. An ultrasound image provides the structural information of each organs of human body. Various techniques have been used for image acquisition and processing of ultrasound images. Visual content of ultrasound images are degraded due to a multiplicative type of noise called as speckle noise. This study deals with a detailed analysis of speckle noise removal techniques in ultrasound medical images.
