A novel filtering operator based on type-2 fuzzy logic is proposed for detail preserving restoration of images corrupted by impulse noise. The performance of the proposed operator is evaluated for different test images corrupted at various noise densities and also compared with representative impulse noise removal operators from the literature. Results of the filtering experiments show that the presented operator offers superior performance over the competing operators by efficiently suppressing the noise in the image while at the same time effectively preserving the useful information in the image.
