Statistical properties of the spatiotemporal center-weighted median (CWM) filter for image sequences are investigated. It is statistically shown that the CWM filter preserves image structures under motion at the expense of noise suppression. To improve the CWM filter so it can be effectively used in image sequence processing, the adaptive directional CWM filter (ADCWM) is proposed. This filter utilizes a multistage filtering structure, based on adaptive symmetric order statistic (ASOS) operators which produce a pair of order statistics symmetric about the median. The ASOSs are selected by using adaptive parameters adjusted by local image statistics. It is shown experimentally that the proposed filter can preserve image structures while attenuating noise without the use of motion estimation
