This paper proposes a class of parallel iterative median-type filters to
restore signals degraded by Gaussian noise. An efficient implementation
of these filters on distributed memory MIMD machines is outlined.
Iterative median-type algorithms have been implemented with high efficiency
(greater than 90%) on the Fujitsu AP1000.
We conclude that algorithms of this type are very suitable for
parallel implementation on distributed memory machines.
