Paper Abstract

Wavelets have been widely used in signal and image processing for the past 20 years. In this paper, we present an overview of the various methods of the wavelet transform in medical image fusion. Using wavelet transform, we presented a general image fusion scheme involves decomposition of the input images, calculation of the wavelet transform modulus, fusion strategy, and reconstruction for new fusion image. Next we provide a survey of recent wavelet developments in medical image fusion. In each case, we provide the reader with some general background information and a brief explanation of how the methods work.
