In this paper, we combine soft-bit decoding with Markov random field modeling of source signals and apply the proposed technique to image communication over noisy channels. No redundancy is added by the encoder in form of channel codes. For error correction and concealment the decoder relies only on the bit-reliability information extracted at the channel output and the random field modeling of natural images. The results obtained show that the proposed method yields excellent performance even under extremely noisy conditions.
