In this paper, we propose novel adaptive wavelet filter bank structures based on the lifting scheme. The filter banks are nonseparable, based on quincunx sampling, with their properties being pixel-wise adapted according to the local image features. Despite being adaptive, the filter banks retain a desirable number of primal and dual vanishing moments. The adaptation is introduced in the predict stage of the filter bank with an adaptation region chosen independently for each pixel, based on the intersection of confidence intervals (ICI) rule. The image denoising results are presented for both synthetic and real-world images. It is shown that the obtained wavelet decompositions perform well, especially for synthetic images that contain periodic patterns, for which the proposed method outperforms the state of the art in image denoising.
