The growth in medical field has led to the transformation of the data from papers into the digital form. As the medical field is moving towards the digital world, security of the medical information/data has become a major concern. The patient information, patient disease diagnosis, etc. are all being stored in the digital images. To make the treatment fast and accurate the digital images are being introduced. This research is about how the data is embedded in the medical scanned images through

The patient information and diagnosis by doctor both serve as the confidential information and hence is treated as secret data. The proposed algorithm attempts to keep this secret data secure and at the same time, make the patient's treatment accurate and fast.
