This paper, is extension of author's earlier work in which use of rotated wavelet filters for image denoising was proposed. Here authors proposed new algorithm based on rotated wavelet filters and bilateral filtering. Proposed Algorithm is tested on different digital modalities (X-ray and Ultrasound) and compared with earlier work and found significant improvements in terms of quality metrics PSNR and SSIM. Implementation simplicity is beauty of proposed algorithm.
