The digital images are corrupted by impulse noise due to errors generated in camera sensors, analog-to-digital conversion and communication channels. Therefore it is necessary to remove impulse noise in-order to provide further processing such as edge detection, segmentation, pattern recognition etc. Filtering a noisy image, while preserving the image details is one of the most important issues in image processing. In this paper, we propose a new method for impulse noise removal in Microarray images. The proposed iterative algorithm search for the noise-free pixels within a small neighborhood. The noisy pixel is then replaced with the value estimated from the noise-free pixels. The process continues iteratively until all noisy-pixels of the noisy image are filtered. The performance of the proposed method is tested using impulse noise corrupted microarray images. The experimental results show the proposed algorithm can perform significantly better in terms of noise suppression and detail preservation in microarray images than a number of existing nonlinear techniques.
