	  abstract     = {In this paper, we present a novel objective nonreference
performance assessment algorithm for image fusion. It takes
into account local measurements to estimate how well the important
information in the source images is represented by the fused image.
The metric is based on the Universal Image Quality Index and uses
the similarity between blocks of pixels in the input images and the
fused image as the weighting factors for the metrics. Experimental
results confirm that the values of the proposed metrics correlate well
with the subjective quality of the fused images, giving a significant
improvement over standard measures based on mean squared error
and mutual information.},
