Medical X-ray images are an important and valuable source of studies and diagnoses for diseases with low cost besides its high availability. However, radiological images are subject to degradations related to low contrast and presence of noise. Based on this finding, this article presents a simple but efficient enhancement method for these images with the objective of contrast gain and noise removal. The proposed method (MP) consists of a sequence of interactive steps. Start from the step of double precision conversion and end with removing impulsive noises. An evaluation with the PSNR, Entropy, AMBE, and IQR indicators was performed, besides gain check on the thresholding process and the histogram characterization. The evaluation was conducted on three different datasets in a total of 1409 images chest X-rays. The results compared to others known in the literature proved to be promising and put it as an interesting alternative in the process of enhancement medical X-ray images.
