This paper proposes a new effective model for denoising images with Rician noise. The sparse representations of images have been shown to be efficient approaches for image processing. Inspired by this, we learn a dictionary from the noisy image and then combine the MAP model with it for Rician noise removal. For solving the proposed model, the primal-dual algorithm is applied and its convergence is studied. The computational results show that the proposed method is promising in restoring images with Rician noise.
