Edge detection is an important pre-processing step in image analysis and computer vision. Medical image edge detection is an important work for object recognition of the human organs. Edge detection of medical images is one of the most important applications for image segmentation. It refers to the process of identifying and locating sharp discontinuities in medical images. In this paper, a soft computing approach based on fuzzy logic is introduced to detect the edges for noisy images. Here, an

The performance of the proposed edge detector is evaluated on different medical images and compared with popular edge detection algorithm. From the experimental results it is clear that the proposed approach has better performance than those of other competing edge detection algorithm for noisy medical images.
