Medical images have always been an important factor in diagnosis of disease. Poisson Noise in those images has always been a problem with the image clarity. We propose two technique which combines Multi-Scale Variance Stabilizing Transform (MS-VST), Fast Discrete Curvelet Transform (FDCT) with Thresholding and MS-VST, FDCT with Null Hypothesis testing for effectively removing the Poisson Noise from the medical images. The effectiveness of using these techniques has been analyzed using Peak Signal to Noise Ratio and Universal Image Quality Index.
