Hybrid PCA-DCT Based Image Fusion For Medical Images

[Full Text]



Prabhdip Kaur



Keywords: Image Fusion, PCA, DCT.



ABSTRACT: The purpose of image fusion is to merge relevant information from multiple images right into a single image. In this paper, by conducting the review it has been discovered that the majority of the existing techniques are based upon transform domain therefore it could results in some artifacts which might decrease the execution of the transform based vision fusion techniques. Moreover it is already been discovered that the issue of the uneven illuminate has already been neglected in the absolute most of existing focus on fusion. Therefore to overcome these issues, a fresh method which integrates the larger valued Alternating Current (AC) coefficients calculated in iterative block level principal component averaging (IBLPCA) domain base fusion with illuminate normalization and fuzzy enhancement has been proposed in this paper. The experimental results show the efficiency of proposed algorithm over existing work.
