In this paper, we present a novel technique for restoring a blurred noisy image without any prior knowledge of the blurring function and the statistics of noise. The technique combines wavelet transform with radial basis function (RBF) neural network to restore the given image which is degraded by Gaussian blur and additive noise. In the proposed technique, the wavelet transform is adopted to decompose the degraded image into high frequency parts and low frequency part. Then the RBF neural

Experimental results show that the proposed technique inherited the advantages of wavelet transform and IPEM, and the algorithm is efficient in computation and robust to the noise.
