The fast growth of the exchange traffic in medical imagery on the Internet justifies the creation of adapted tools guaranteeing the quality and the confidentiality of the information while respecting the legal and ethical constraints, specific to this field. The joint usage of steganography and cryptography brings an efficient solution, whose implementation in medical routine is realistic, thanks to the current progress in data processing (broad band Internet access and grid computing).
