Title

Artificial Intelligence – II: Watermarking of chest CT scan medical images for content authentication

Abstract/Description

Medical image is usually comprised of region of interest (ROI) and region of non interest (RONI). ROI is the region that contains the important information from diagnosis point of view so it must be stored without any distortion. We have proposed a digital watermarking technique which avoids the distortion of image in ROI by embedding the watermark information in RONI. The watermark is comprised of patient information, hospital logo and message authentication code, computed using hash function. Earlier BCH encryption of watermark is performed to ensure inaccessibility of embedded data to the adversaries.
