Abstract

Digital imaging and communications in medicine are being applied widely to improve health care for people, and their security attracted our attention when they are transmitted through the Internet. The paper proposes a digital watermarking method for medical images based on digital holography and three-level discrete wavelength transform (DWT) singular value decomposition (SVD), where a live code including privacy information is transformed into digital holography by an improved computer-generated hologram method. The holography then is embedded into the singular values of the LL3 subband wavelet of the medical image. Experimental results show that the proposed method provides sufficient security results against various attacks, especially geometrical attacks.
