Paper Abstract

Transform based compression methods achieve their effect by taking advantage of the correlations between adjacent pLtels in an image. The increasing use of three-dimensional imaging studies in radiology requires new techniques for image compression. For time-sequenced studies such as digital subtraction angiography, pixels are correlated between images, as well as within an image. By using three-dimensional cosine transforms, correlations in time as well as space can be exploited for image compression. Sequences of up to eight 512 x 512 x 8-bit images were compressed using a single full volume three-dimensional cosine transform, followed by quantization and bit-allocation. The quantization process is a uniform thresholding type and an adaptive three-dimensional bit-allocation table is used. The resultant image fidelity vs. compression ratio was shown to be superior to that achieved by compressing each image individually.
