Henry and Dorian designed an image post-processing package in collaboration with IBEX Innovations, a materials driven medical X-ray imaging company. IBEX Innovations were looking to have full control over their product pipeline, a womb-to-tomb solution cutting out the post-processing middleman. They also wished to explore how IBEX specific materials information could further better their products.
To this end, X-ray images were subjected to selective image
enhancements guided by the materials information. This culminated in a
MUltiscale Denoising and ContRast Amplification Blender (MUDCRAB), a
package that carries out contrast enhancement, detail
enhancement and noise reduction. MUDCRAB was used to post-process x-ray
images which were subsequently sent on to a clinical trial.
