In this paper, we present a novel region-based multimodal image fusion algorithm in the ICA domain. It uses segmentation to determine the most important regions in the input images and consequently fuses the ICA coefficients from the given regions. The proposed method exhibits considerably higher performance than the basic ICA algorithm and shows improvement over other state-of-the-art algorithms.
