The X-ray bone images are extensively used by the medical practitioners to detect the minute fractures as they are painless and economical compared to other image modalities. This paper proposes a parameterized design of biorthogonal wavelet based on the algebraical construction method. In order to assign the characters of biorthogonal wavelet, there are two kinds of parameters which are introduced in construction process. One is scale factor and another one is sign factor. In edge detection, the necessary condition of wavelet design is put forward and two wavelet filers are built. The simulation results show that the parameterized design of biorthogonal wavelet is simple and feasible. The biorthogonal wavelet zbo6.6 performs well in detecting the edges with better quality. The various performance metrics like Ratio of Edge pixels to size of image (REPS), peak signal to noise ratio (PSNR) and computation time are compared for various biorthogonal wavelets.
