A technical method of noise modeling and adaptive filtering reducing of speckle noise in ultrasonic medical images is presented. By adjusting the characteristics of the filer according to local statistics around each pixel of the image as moving windowing, it is possible to suppress noise sufficiently while preserve edge and other significant information required in diagnosis. Homogeneous factor(HF) from the noise models that enables the filter to recognize the local structures of the image is introduced, and an algorithm for determining the HF fitted to the diagnostic systems with various inner statistical properties is proposed. We show by the experimented that the performance of proposed method is superior to these of other filters and models in preserving small details and suppressing the noise at homogeneous region.
