Medical imaging is one of the important and challenging areas of research in the field of
image processing. Medical images play an important role in the field of medical science by giving
support to the diagnostic process of a disease and in suggesting the treatment. Medical images produced
by different acquisition devices are not of very high resolution and they require a very deep and
critical analysis to diagnose a disease. In our work we have addressed the problem of very low resolution
by improving the spatial quality of the images by applying super resolution (SR). Process of SR is
further composed of two steps, namely image registration and image reconstruction. We have targeted Medical Resonance
(MR) images and improved their spatial resolution, because MR is more capable of capturing the details of soft tissues.
Our proposed algorithm consists of phases which deal with the image both in the spatial domain as well as the frequency
domain. We have used the demons deformable image registration algorithm in the image registration phase and wavelet
based method for image reconstruction. After reconstruction various qualitative and quantitative measures have been applied
on the images. These measures clearly support the claim that the proposed technique has improved the visibility of
58% of the images, such that, reconstructed high resolution images have more resolving power as compared to the low
resolution input images.
