Abstract

The traditional wavelet-based image fusion method has some problems, in order to further satisfy the requirements of image fusion on the right direction, this paper studies the principle and performance contourlet transformation based on the proposed sensitivity analysis. In this method, contourlet multi-resolution, locality and direction effectively capture the source image in detail, texture, direction of information, enhance the visibility of the fused image and obtain the higher quality medical images.
