    Enhancement of CT Images for Visualization



    Modern medical science strongly depends on imaging technologies for accurate diagnose and treatment planning. Raw medical images generally require post-processing – like edge and contrast enhancement, and noise removal – for visualization. In this paper, a clustering-based contrast enhancement technique is presented for computed tomography (CT) images.
