The image processing methods collectively known as super-resolution have proven useful in creating high-quality images from a group of low-resolution photographic images. Single image super resolution (SISR) has been applied in a variety of fields. The paper offers an in-depth analysis of a few current picture super resolution works created in various domains. In order to comprehend the most current developments in the development of Image super resolution systems, these recent publications have been examined with particular emphasis paid to the domain for which these systems have been designed, image enhancement used or not, among other factors. To improve the accuracy of the image super resolution, a different deep learning techniques might be explored. In fact, greater research into the image super resolution in medical imaging is possible to improve the data's suitability for future analysis. In light of this, it can be said that there is a lot of scope for research in the field of medical imaging.
