The confidentiality and safety of patient records is a significant concern for medical professionals. So protections must be placed to guarantee that illegal individuals do not have access to medical images (Patient’s description). Hence, the objective of this study is to secure digital medical images being transmitted over the internet from being accessed by an intruder. The study, therefore, proposed a modified Least Significant Bit (LSB) algorithm implemented on a MATLAB 2018a programming environment, and the proposed system was compared with the existing system using three performance metrics which are PSNR. MSE and SSIM. The result showed that the proposed approach outperformed the current standard methods by producing a more robust, high capacity, and highly imperceptible stego image. The comparative analysis conducted also showed that the PSNR valve is higher, and MSE value is lower when compared with existing systems. It was concluded that the projected technique accomplishes excellently in making the medical image transmitted to be more secured, robust, and invisible, thereby making the communication to be unnoticeable by an intruder or attacker.
