In order to protect the image contents, many reversible medical image watermarking schemes have been proposed, although reversibility guaranteed the lossless of the cover image, but it also has some shortcomings such as it is vulnerable to geometrical attacks. So a novel robust watermarking scheme for medical image based on the combination Redundancy Discrete Wavelet Transform (RDWT) and Singular Value Decomposition (SVD) is proposed in this letter. Different from the reversibility, which

The experimental results show that the proposed scheme has the large amounts of embedding capacity; it is also robust against rotation attacks; and the perceptional quality of watermarked image meets the need of usage in medical images.
