An objective performance measure for image fusion considering region information is proposed. The measure not only reflects how much the pixel level information that fused image takes from the source image, but also considers the region information between source images and fused image. The measure is meaningful and explicit. Several simulations were conducted to show that it accords well with the subjective evaluations.
