Main Article Content
In medical radiology there are large amounts of digital images in hospitals and health centers. Equipment that enables the acquisition of medical radiographs uses X-radiation sensor plates for image acquisition in medical diagnosis. Medical radiology equipment uses anti-scatter grids, which are physical devices, to avoid unwanted effects on imaging. In the present work, we analyse from a qualitative point of view the radiation scattering effect that is caused in images without the presence of the anti-scattering grid. In this research, the acquisition of radiological images was made by means of X-ray equipment with an anti-scattering grid, capturing images without scattering and others that only present radiation scattering as a point of comparison. The methodology uses the Wavelet transformation to image characterization in segment process that define the regions that affect the different types of dispersion presented in X radiation. The tool used for the analysis of the images is the multi-resolution Wavelet transform, specifically the Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT). The methodology was applied to different 2D radiological images in shades of gray. In the images used, it showed a robustness in the differentiation of X radiation incidence zones. This work is the beginning of a distortion analysis for the reconstruction of this type of images.
