Highlights and Novelties

1- A comparison on various traditional and hybrid medical image fusion algorithms is proposed.

2- It preserves all relevant and important information contained in input images.

3- Fused medical image facilitates accurate diagnosis and better clinical treatment analysis.

Manuscript Abstract
The extensive use of medical imaging has become a regular practice in modern medical health care centers. It is used almost in every stage of patient management system. However, it is intuition or expertise of physician to choose a modality or alternative modality wisely for managing the patient as single multimodal medical image has limitations. Therefore, single multimodal medical image is necessarily ruled out in diagnosis and treatment processes. Multimodal medical image fusion plays a significant role in the diagnosis, treatment planning, delivery of treatment, and review of patients response to the treatment. In this chapter proposed new fused image created from two multimodal medical images for the better visualization and interpretation of abnormalities in context with the purpose of accurate diagnosis, to prepare precise treatment plan, to classify the stages of diseases, and to review the effectiveness of the treatment. The proposed research work presents the feature based fusion algorithms in transforms domain to combine the relevant and complementary spectral features of two modalities namely computed tomography(CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Single photon Computed Tomography(SPECT). The traditional fusion algorithms compared with hybrid fusion algorithm. The hybrid multimodality medical image fusion is a powerful technique for analysis of lesions. In this chapter experimental results discovered that the proposed techniques provide better visualization of fused image and gives the superior results compared to various existing traditional algorithms
