Abstract

Poisson processes are commonly used models for describing discrete arrival phenomena arising, for example, in photon-limited scenarios in low-light and infrared imaging, astronomy, and nuclear medicine applications. In this context, several recent efforts have evaluated Poisson denoising methods that utilize contemporary sparse modeling and dictionary learning techniques designed to exploit and leverage (local) shared structure in the images being estimated. This paper establishes a theoretical foundation for such procedures. Specifically, we formulate sparse and structured dictionary-based Poisson denoising methods as constrained maximum likelihood estimation strategies, and establish performance bounds for their mean-square estimation error using the framework of complexity penalized maximum likelihood analyses.
