Abstract

This paper presents the process of integrating digital watermarking technique into medical imaging workflow to evaluate, validate and verify its applicability and appropriateness to medical domains. This is significant to ensure the ability of the proposed approach to tackle security threats that may face medical images during routine medical practices. This work considers two key objectives within the aim of defining a secure and practical digital medical imaging system: current digital medical workflows are deeply analyzed to define security limitations in Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS) of medical imaging; the proposed watermarking approach is then theoretically tested and validated in its ability to operate in a real-world scenario (e.g. PACS). These have been undertaken through identified case studies related to manipulations of medical images within PACS workflow during acquisition, viewing, exchanging and archiving. This work assures the achievement of the identified particular requirements of digital watermarking when applied to digital medical images and also provides robust controls within medical imaging pipelines to detect modifications that may be applied to medical images during viewing, storing and transmitting.
