The methodology of THz-VIS fused images evaluation
AbstractImage fusion can be used in a wide range of security applications for example detection and identification of hidden objects. Our goal is to build a system harmless to humans for screening and detection of hidden objects using a THz camera. A very important aspect of applying various processing techniques to images is proper assessment of image quality. We propose a combination of two image quality assessment methods as a methodology of assessing quality of the fused images and a method to compare image fusion algorithms.
