Abstract

The inverse sonification problem is discussed in this paper in order to identify new features in its capability to discover hidden details in the medical images. In contrast to the direct problem of sonification that convert the data points into audio samples, the inverse problem is turning back the sound representation into images in order to obtain clarity, good contrast and low noise. The technique is exercised on several images used for surgical operations.
