Analysis and Comparison of Image Enhancement Technique for Improving PSNR of Lung Images by Linear Contrast Enhancement Technique over Histogram Equalization Technique

Abstract

Aim: The aim of this study is to compare and analyze linear contrast enhancement algorithm for lung image enhancement over novel histogram equalization technique. Material and Methods: In this research, different sources of lung images collected from the kaggle website were used. Samples were considered as (N=30) for linear contrast filter and (N=30) for novel histogram equalization technique with total sample size calculated using clinical.com. As a result the total number of samples was calculated to be 60. Using SPSS Software and a standard data set, the PSNR was obtained. Both linear contrast filter and novel histogram equalization technique image enhancement were implemented on lung images through Matlab coding and also PSNR values of each image were extracted. Then through SPSS software comparison and analysis has been made. Result: In the final output of image enhancement, novel histogram equalization technique shows better performance in improving PSNR of lung images than linear contrast filter. Comparison of PSNR values are done by independent sample test using IBM-SPSS software. There is a statistical difference between histogram technique and linear contrast filter. The novel histogram equalization technique showed higher results of PSNR (65.9197dB) with (p=0.04) in comparison with linear contrast filter (36.1190dB). Conclusion: Within this research study the histogram equalization image enhancement technique has greater PSNR value of lung images than in linear contrast enhancement technique.
