i have an image of lung effected with cancer. what i want to do is, first i want to eliminate noise if present in image by using a filter.for this can u provide best result. i known wiener function. and then i want to make image segmentation for finding the effected cells base on intensities. after that what i want to do is template matching with some predefined data base. i want your help friends.

I take it as a base paper which you provided for me @Walter Roberson, can you help me in this project,since I am an instrumentation student and new to field of image processing.

There are tons of papers on lung cancer image processing/analysis. You can find a list of some/most of them (at least in the Image Processing Journals) here:
20.7.2 Lungs, and Lung Cancer Image Analysis
20.7.2.1 Thorax, Thoracic Analysis
20.7.2.2 Pulmonary Nodules, Lung Nodules
There may also be some others in the medical journals. We don't have code for any of those papers so you'll have to ask the authors or code them up yourself. And I'm sure every author is presenting what they think is the best method, but I have no way of knowing which is really best, or even appropriate, for your kind of images. Good luck.

we are trying to build the code by our own, but what we need is some experience person in the field of image processing so that we can go on with our work. thank you for providing information related to my work.

My experience in the field of image processing would suggest that when you have a limited time that you should avoid asking for the "best" method of doing something, and should instead pick a method of doing it and start implementing.
Image Analyst is probably the most experienced person in image processing around, but not the most experienced in medical images. Image Analyst does not have time to do your research for you. I do not have time to do your research for you. I would be surprised if Star Strider has time to do your research for you (but I don't know; he might be willing to consider a research contract.)
Start implementing and if you run into parts of MATLAB you do not understand then we will assist in that.
