Abstract: In recent years massive production of digital images increased the need for image denoising. The effect of noise can be removed by using spatial and frequency domain approaches. Discrete Wavelet Transforms (DWT) is a frequency domain approach, which removes the noise by shrinking the wavelet coefficients using simple threshold value. Even though wavelet transform is popularly used in image processing applications, shift variance and poor directional selectivity are the two noteworthy limitations. In order to overcome these limitations, Dual Tree Complex Wavelet Transform (DTCWT) is used for perfect reconstruction of noisy image. A DTCWT incorporating Singular Value Decomposition (SVD) with Frobenius energy correcting factor and bilateral filter for image denoising using bivariate shrinkage function for thresholding the image is proposed in this paper. The denoising performance of the proposed method in terms of PSNR and it indicates that the proposed method outperforms over other existing techniques.
