Part of the SpringerBriefs in Applied Sciences and Technology book series (BRIEFSAPPLSCIENCES)


This chapter presents various data hiding techniques in hybrid, transform domain and spatial domain for integrity verification of medical image. These techniques are designed using various image transforms such as DCT, SVD, FDCuT, NSCT, and CS-based encryption. Finally, simulation results of these techniques are demonstrated in this chapter.
