Non-linear diffusion or Variable Conductance Diffusion (VCD) processes can be used as to filter away noise while preserving boundary information. However, adjustment of the control parameters is not well understood. By approaching the control of VCD systems through a multiscale statistical analysis, information about the image is revealed regarding the strength of boundaries and their influence with regard to the local geometry of the object. This information can then be used to monitor and guide the diffusion process.
