A novel filtering operator based on type-2 fuzzy logic techniques is proposed for detail preserving restoration of impulse noise corrupted images. The performance of the proposed operator is tested for different test images corrupted at various noise densities and also compared with representative conventional as well as state-of-the-art impulse noise removal operators from the literature. Experimental results show that the proposed operator exhibits superior performance over the competing operators and is capable of efficiently suppressing the noise in the image while at the same time effectively preserving the useful information in the image.
