An intelligent filter, originally a median filter, was developed and i
ntroduced as noise correction in order to distinguish white spots from
pixels which hold image information. The algorithm of the intelligent
filter is able to correct dark spots as well as white spots using ind
ependent criteria and does not affect any other signals. The experimen
tal results confirmed that the intelligent filter worked as a white sp
ot correction effectively.
