The median filter is an important filter in many image processing algorithms and especially in removal of salt and pepper noise. Traditional median filters either focus on improving the performance or the quality of the median filtering. Generally, the methods which optimize performance do so at the cost of quality and vice-versa. In this paper a novel approach to median filtering is presented providing both better performance and quality without sacrificing either. The analysis is presented with respect to image processing and the results obtained are presented in tabular form.
