Top: This curious image is a digitized x-ray of a muscovy duck.

 

Bottom: Restored Image. As you can see, much greater detail is seen when the degration is removed.  (The straight line on the right was not orignially imaged, but superimposed for demonstrative purposes.  Thus it appears distorted after deconvolution.)  A deconvolution of a penguin X-ray is also included in the slide show above.

 

Top: This is a digital dental panoramic X-ray of human teeth. The original image had a bit depth of 8 bits, and had jpeg compression.

 

Bottom: Restored Image. Despite the low bit depth, the resolution of this image is drastically improved. However, if you closely at the gray areas, you can see some artifacting that results from the jpeg compression.  A second digital X-ray of teeth is included in the slide show above.

 

 

This is a digital scan of an ultrasound image that was printed on paper.  The feet belong to my oldest son.  The restoration is noticeable, but not dramatic.  With each step that occurs before the scanning, there is potential for information about the blur function to be lost.  The slideshow includes two other ultrasound scans, one for each of my other kids.
