A three-dimensional filtering algorithm for CT images (HeNLM-LA3D) has been proposed that is based on expanding the pixel neighborhood into Hermite functions, which form an orthonormal basis. Accounting for Hermite functions properties, pixel neighborhoods are oriented according to principal components of the structure tensor. The filtering parameter is adaptively adjusted to local estimates of the noise level. A noise estimation algorithm is proposed.
