A novel filter based on four most similar neighbors (MSN) is proposed in this paper which considers all the pixels of the sliding window except the central pixel after taking the first order absolute differences from the central pixel. The proposed filter is composed of two steps: noise detection followed by filtering. In noise detection, first order absolute differences are calculated and sorted in ascending order. Clusters of equal sizes are formed based on most similar pixels and then fuzzy rules are applied to detect the noise present in the current pixel. Threshold parameters are set adaptively. In filtering phase, median based fuzzy filter is used to restore the corrupted pixels. Experimental results show that the proposed filter outperforms several state-of-the-art filers for random value impulse noise removal in an image.
