Medical images provide an excellent way to identify the presence of diseases in a highly acceptable and correct manner. These images, however, due to the physical limitations of imaging instruments, have various types of artifacts. Techniques, such as those found in the computer-based image processing discipline are used as an alternative to the costly instrument to reduce or control these artifacts. A medical expert performs the complex task of disease identification and prognosis based on the visualized medical image data. The quality of medical images thus plays an important role to lower the chance of misdiagnosis and resulting in incorrect treatment. To meet the requirement of high-quality image data for the medical professional, in this research work, an innovative system is developed with the help of standard transform domain operations, data fusion, and fuzzy contrast enhancement system. Furthermore, the graphics processing unit and lookup table based technique are combined toward potential real-time implementation of the designed system. The proposed system can significantly improve the radiological contents inside medical image data to ease the task of the medical expert.
