A Novel Multi-Focus Image Fusion Method Using Shearlet Transform


Article Preview

According to the different frequency areas decomposed by shearlet transform, the selection principles of the lowpass subbands and highpass subbands were discussed respectively. The lowpass subband coefficients of the fused image can be obtained by means of the fusion rule based on the region variation, the highpass subband coefficients can be selected by means of the fusion rule based on the region energy. Experimental results show that comparing with traditional image fusion algorithms, the proposed approach can provide more satisfactory fusion outcome.
