Paper Abstract

The potential of overlapped transform coding for data compression of medical x-ray image series has been investigated and a comparison with conventional block-based transform coding was made. We found that overlapped transform coding clearly produces less blocking artifacts than conventional block-based transform coding at compression ratios in the range 8 - 16.
