Abstract: The principal resolution of the image fusion is to merging indication from different images; CT (Computed Tomography) scan and an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) and to obtain more informative image. In this paper various transform based fusion methods like; discrete wavelet transform (DWT) and two specialisms of discrete cosine transform (DCT); DCT variance and DCT variance with consistency verification (DCT variance with CV) and stationary wavelet transform (SWT) image fusion procedures are instigated and associated in terms of image evidence. Fused outcomes attained from these fusion techniques are evaluated through distinctive evaluation metrics. A fused result accomplished from DCT variance with CV followed by DCT variance out performs DWT and SWT based image fusion methodologies. The potentiality of DCT features creates value-added evidence in the output fused image trailed by fused results proficient from DWT and SWT based image fusion methods. The discrete cosine transforms (DCT) stranded methods of image fusion are auxiliary accurate and concert leaning in real time solicitations by energy forte of DCT originated ideologies of stationary images. In this effort, a glowing systematic practice for fusion of multi-focus images based on DCT and its flavors are obtainable and demonstrated that DCT grounded fused outcomes exceed other fusion methodologies.
