One of the areas of our interest at the moment is the evaluation of MS-SSIM index family, as a set of useful tools to analyze several aspects of radiologicl images. These metrics are based on the analysis of the structural similarity of two images.
As an intermediate result, we have developed in Java a plugin version for ImageJ of MS-SSIM index, created by Zhou Wang et al. and MS-SSIM* index, created by David M. Rouse and Sheila S. Hemami. It is our aim to share our programs as Open Source Software with the scientific community.
In this web you can download this software tool (developed as a ImageJ plugin) and the user manual. Also you can download some test images with our results. We have tested our plugin with Mr. Wang’s and Mr. Rose’s MatLab code, with almost identical results for each algorithm.
