Abstract
The performance evaluation of image fusion algorithms is a difficult task using standard objective metrics specially because there is no reference image to compare with. In this paper we present a nonreference image fusion quality assessment procedure based on the use of the mutual information between the source images and the generalized Tsallis entropy. This procedure will be useful in other image quality evaluation scenarios as well, where the absence of a ground truth reference image can hamper the assessment of the results.
