An Improved Method for CT/MRI Image Fusion on Bandelets Transform Domain
People living in the information age, are more and more attention to their own lives. It is also said, social life is more important in present and future. The social life contains three fields. In this paper, we will propose a new method for adjunctive therapy in social life. Recent years, as the bandelets transform has some benefits, many scholars are interested in this field. They proposed many methods to solve different problems in different fields. In this paper, we propose a new maximum local energy method to calculate the low coefficients of images. And then adopt the sum modified laplacian method to select the high coefficients of images. Later, we compare the results with wedgelets transform. In our experiments, we take wedgelets transform, bandelets transform, and LE-wedgelets transform for comparing the results. Beside the human vision, we also compare the results by quantitative analysis. The numerical experiments state clearly that the maximum local energy is an effect way for image fusion, which can get well performance in visual effect and quantitative analysis. During 100 clinic CT/MR fusion experiments in practice, compare with previous methods, the PSNR of our method is improved respectively 5.836, 5.337, 0.035.
