Several image processing procedures have been used for the enhancement and detection of weapons concealed underneath clothing in millimeterwave data. Specifically, registration, fusion, tracking, enhancement, segmentation, and recognition procedures have been successfully tested. These procedures are reviewed in this paper along with examples of their application.
