The fusion techniques that utilize multiple feature sets to form new features that are often more robust and contain useful information for future processing are referred to as feature fusion [1]. The term data fusion is applied to the class of techniques used for combining decisions obtained from multiple feature sets to form global decisions [2]. Feature and data fusion interchangeably represent two important classes of techniques that have proved to be of practical importance in a wide range of medical imaging problems.
