Abstract: This paper presents a comparison of the Median Filter and its variants that are used for the preprocessing of mammilla cancer images in Medical Imaging. Preprocessing of mammilla cancer images is a very important step in their accurate espial. Median filters and its other versions such as Adaptive Median Filter, Progressive Switching Median Filter, and Relaxed Median Filter are applied on a dataset of open source mammilla cancer images for their preprocessing. Their perpetration is compared based on various performance metrics and it’s inferred that the Relaxed Median Filter outperforms the performance of the other Median Filters used.

Keywords: Median, Adaptive, Filter, Switching.
Scope of the Article: Measurement & Performance Analysis
