Abstract: A web dedicated application is very useful for assisted diagnosis in healthcare domain. Medical images acquired with different medical image modalities contain important diagnostic information. The combination of complementary data from different images can lead to more important information. The fusion process allows combination of salient feature of these images. In this paper we present methods for medical image fusion, based on discrete wavelet transform. These methods are implemented in a web distributed application, using Java technology. The web dedicated application will integrate components able to be discovered in a ubiquitous computing system. The components are developed in dedicated Java packages that allow physicians to realize a fusion from a remote place. Considering radiology images we approve the functionality of the application by calculating significant quantitative parameters for fusion process evaluation.

Keywords: Image fusion, wavelet transform, distributed application, multi-resolution decomposition
