Abstract
X-ray angiography images of the legs are enhanced using linear and morphological image processing tech- I1iques. Salient features of the leg images include high contrast bones relatively smooth soft tissue and arteries. Filter parameters are optimized to enhance the arteries while deemphasizing the bones and other structured noise. Morphological processing has several advantages compared to linear processing including improved retention of both arterial dimensions and x-ray density. 1
