Medical data analysis from different imaging modalities has been increased in medical field . The image fusion techniques is the efficient way of combining and enhancing medical imaging information, have drawn increasing concentration from the medical community. In this paper, we propose a novel CROSS SCALE COEFFICIENT selection fusion rule for laplacian pyramidal multiscale decomposition-based fusion of medical images taking into account both intrascale and interscale consistencies. An optimal set of coefficients from the multiscale representations of the source images is determined by effective exploitation of neighborhood information. An efficient fusion scheme is also proposed. Experiments demonstrate that our fusion rule generates better results than existing rules.
