The necessity of fast and secure diagnosis is vital in the medical world. Nowadays, the transmission of medical images is a daily routine and it is necessary to find an efficient way to transmit them over the Internet. In this paper we propose a new technique to cipher an image for safe and de-noised transmission employing image cryptography and image to image steganography. The hospitals and health systems in general are entrusted the tedious task of managing and supervising huge volume of medical and patient information. Owing to the extreme popularity and potential of Cloud Computing in recent times, in this paper its usage in secure storage, archiving and accessing of medical images and data is considered as an appealing recourse to the healthcare infrastructure for enhanced patient care.
