Fused Image Quality Measure Based on Structural Similarity
Under the assumption that human visual perception is highly adapted for extracting structural information from a scene, we present a new approach using structural similarity index for assessing quality in image fusion. The advantages of our measures are that they do not require a reference image and can be easily computed. Numerous simulations demonstrate that our measures are conform to subjective evaluations and can be able to assess different image fusion methods.
