Objective: The aim of the study was to embed sensitive patient information and image data in a cover image to enable secure transmission of confidential data.

Methods: Image steganography is a process used to embed (hide with encryption) data which includes text, images or audio, and video files inside the main image file. This embedding is done by altering the values of some pixels which are chosen by the encryption algorithm. The algorithm used in this case is the Discrete Wavelet Transformation Algorithm using MATLAB.

Results: Statistical features such as signal to noise ratio (SNR), Peak SNR, and (mean squared error) were extracted from the medical images to test the loss during steganography and transmission.

Conclusion: A technique that enables secure and swift image data transmission using image steganography technique is proposed.
