Abstract: The need to increase the complexity of computational methods to produce improvements in functional performance, particularly in medical image processing applications, leads to find suitable physical devices. This chapter describes two ways of adapting the techniques of image processing to quantum devices. This kind of computing can achieve, for some problems, unparalleled performance as compared to classic computing. In the first method, using the quantum Grover’s algorithm how to implement image processing techniques under quantum rules is shown. In the second method, using diffraction and interference, the possibility of using less complex quantum devices for processing digital images is treated. Using leucocytes images, that mode is tested.
