TY - CHAP A1 - Nemir Al-Azzawi A2 - Wan Ahmed K. Wan Abdullah ED1 - Yufeng Zheng Y1 - 2011-06-24 PY - 2011 T1 - Medical Image Fusion Schemes Using Contourlet Transform and PCA Bases N2 - The purpose of this book is to provide an overview of basic image fusion techniques and serve as an introduction to image fusion applications in variant fields. It is anticipated that it will be useful for research scientists to capture recent developments and to spark new ideas within the image fusion domain. With an emphasis on both the basic and advanced applications of image fusion, this 12-chapter book covers a number of unique concepts that have been graphically represented throughout to enhance readability, such as the wavelet-based image fusion introduced in chapter 2 and the 3D fusion that is proposed in Chapter 5. The remainder of the book focuses on the area application-orientated image fusions, which cover the areas of medical applications, remote sensing and GIS, material analysis, face detection, and plant water stress analysis.
