Soliman, M. M., A. E. Hassanien, N. I. Ghali, and H. M. Onsi, "An adaptive Watermarking Approach for Medical Imaging Using Swarm Intelligent", International Journal of Smart Home, (ISSN: 1975-4094), vol. 6, issue 1, pp. 37-45, 2012.


In this paper we present a secure patient medical images and authentication scheme which enhances the security, confidentiality and integrity of medical images transmitted through the Internet. This paper proposes a watermarking by invoking particle swarm optimization (PSO) technique in adaptive quantization index modulation and singular value decomposition in conjunction with discrete wavelet transform (DWT) and discrete cosine transform (DCT). The proposed approach promotes the robustness and watermarked image quality. The experimental results show that the proposed algorithm yields a watermark which is invisible to human eyes, robust against a wide variety of common attacks and reliable enough for tracing colluders.
