Medical Image WatermarkingTechniques and Applications
Multimedia Systems and Applications
This book presents medical image watermarking techniques and algorithms for telemedicine and other emerging applications. This book emphasizes on medical image watermarking to ensure the authenticity of transmitted medical information. It begins with an introduction of digital watermarking, important characteristics, novel applications, different watermarking attacks and standard benchmark tools. This book also covers spatial and transform domain medical image watermarking techniques and their merits and limitations. The authors have developed improved/novel watermarking techniques for telemedicine applications that offer higher robustness, better perceptual quality and increased embedding capacity and secure watermark. The suggested methods may find potential applications in the prevention of patient identity theft and health data management issues which is a growing concern in telemedicine applications. This book provides a sound platform for understanding the medical image watermarking paradigm for researchers in the field and advanced-level students. Industry professionals working in this field, as well as other emerging applications demanding robust and secure watermarking will find this book useful as a reference.
