Nayak J, Bhat PS, Acharya U R, Uc N - Biomed Eng Online (2004)

Bottom Line: It can be seen from results, the process does not affect the picture quality.Spatial and DFT domain interleaving gave very less %NRMSE as compared to DCT and DWT domain.Among the frequency domain interleaving methods, DFT was found to be very efficient.

ABSTRACT

Background: Digital watermarking is a technique of hiding specific identification data for copyright authentication. This technique is adapted here for interleaving patient information with medical images, to reduce storage and transmission overheads.

Methods: The patient information is encrypted before interleaving with images to ensure greater security. The bio-signals are compressed and subsequently interleaved with the image. This interleaving is carried out in the spatial domain and Frequency domain. The performance of interleaving in the spatial, Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT), Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT) and Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) coefficients is studied. Differential pulse code modulation (DPCM) is employed for data compression as well as encryption and results are tabulated for a specific example.

Results: It can be seen from results, the process does not affect the picture quality. This is attributed to the fact that the change in LSB of a pixel changes its brightness by 1 part in 256. Spatial and DFT domain interleaving gave very less %NRMSE as compared to DCT and DWT domain.

Conclusion: The Results show that spatial domain the interleaving, the %NRMSE was less than 0.25% for 8-bit encoded pixel intensity. Among the frequency domain interleaving methods, DFT was found to be very efficient.

Mentions: The information to be stored is encrypted before watermarking to enhance the security. Highly secured algorithm called as Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), which is developed by National Institute of standards and Technology, is used for the encryption of text data. This algorithm is also called as Rijndael algorithm, which is designed by John Daemen and Vincent Rijmen. Rijndael's key length is defined to be either 128, or 192 or 256 bits in accordance with the requirements of the AES [9]. Figure 2(a) and 2(b) shows the original patient data and the encrypted data respectively.
