An efficient data hiding method in images

Saranya G


Data Hiding has a huge range of applications in the medical field for transmission. It is helpful in securing the documentation of the patients from the violator with good storage space. The medical images of different modalities like CT, MRI, and PET with the digitized clinical information can be sent to the doctors across the world for the treatment. Due to the bandwidth and storage constraints, medical images along with the clinical information must be compressed before transmission and storage. This paper gives a technique for hiding the digitized clinical information along with the DICOM images in Complex Contourlet Transform (CCT) Domain. It also analyses the compression method by using an Entropy Encoder method. Hence, this work suggests that the data hiding method based on Complex Contourlet Transform (CCT) is efficient and also it has a high hiding capacity. The improved value of Compression Ratio (CR), Space Saving (SS), Mean Square Error (MSE) and Peak Signal to Noise Ratio (PSNR) shows that the new method satisfies the properties of the data hiding method.
