This paper describes a new methodology for multimodal image fusion based on non-Gaussian statistical modelling of wavelet coefficients of the input images. The use of families of generalised Gaussian and alpha-stable distributions for modelling image wavelet coefficients is investigated and methods for estimating distribution parameters are proposed. Improved techniques for image fusion are developed, by incorporating these models into the weighted average image fusion algorithm. The superior performance of the proposed methods is demonstrated using multimodal image datasets
