Medical images are transferred to other remote locations through the electronic health care system. Protecting medical images is extremely important. Medical images must be protected from any modification that the attacker may make through the insecure channel. It is necessary to check the integrity of the ROI (area of ​​interest) of the received medical image. Before adopting any diagnostic decision to avoid misdiagnosis, the goal of this thesis is to confirm the integrity, reliability and confidentiality of medical images by combining watermark and coding techniques and the proposed strong segmentation method for JPEG compression. Likewise, this method resists many image processing attacks such as filtering, noise addition and some engineering transformations. The experimental results demonstrate the robustness of the watermark against many aggressive and geometric signal processing distortions. The discussion was attended by the Deputy Head of the Department for Scientific Affairs and Graduate Studies (Prof. Dr. Muhammad Yusuf Hassan). On this occasion, we congratulate the student (Amira Kazem Jabbar) and wish her continued success.
