In the category of "eye-catching titles," the April 2010 issue of IEEE Transactions on Image Processing has an article entitled "Is Denoising Dead?" According to the abstract, the article asks "whether there is a theoretical limit to denoising performance and, more importantly, are we there yet?" Apparently the answer is no—not yet.
