This paper presents a ne w wavelet -based image denoising method which is "Bayesian Network" are probably the most popular type of graphical model.In this paper our objective is to construct a Bayesian Network from a single image for denoising purpose.The construction of a Bayesian Network involves prior knowledge of the probability relationships between the variables of interest.Learning approaches are widely used to construct Bayesian Network that best represent the joint probabilities of

In this method the data is represented in wavelet domain and restriciting the space of possible networks by using certain techniques.The proposed approach exploits a hidden Bayesian network constructed from wavelet coefficient to model the prior probability of the original image.Then use the belief propagation (BP) algorithm which estimates a coefficient of an image as the maximum-a-posterior (MAP) estimator to derive the denoised wavelet coefficient. We show that if the network is a spanning tree,the standard BP algorithm can perform MAP estimation efficiently.Our experiment results demonstrate that in terms of the peak-signal-to-noise ratio and perceptual quality the reconstructed image has been improved.The planned approach out performs state-of-the-art algorithms on several images mostly in the textured regions, with various amounts of white Gaussian noise.
