The most significant feature of diagnostic medical images is to reduce Gaussian noise, and salt and pepper noise which is commonly found in medical images and make better image quality. In recent years, technological development has significantly improved analyzing medical imaging. This paper proposes different hybrid filtering techniques for the removal of Gaussian noise, and salt and pepper noise. The filters are treated in terms of a finite set of certain estimation and neighborhood building operations. A set of such operations is suggested on the base of the analysis of a wide variety of nonlinear filters described in the literature.

Key words: Gaussian noise, salt and pepper noise, hybrid filter.
