Paper Abstract

We have developed a fast, reversible compression algorithm based on wavelet-like filter banks and arithmetic coding (AC) for primary diagnostic teleradiology using inexpensive, off-the- shelf hardwares. This new method offers routine 2:1 to 4:1 compression ratios, while it requires only a few seconds processing time on a microcomputer. This compression performance will make affordable primary diagnostic teleradiology over standard phone lines or ISDN possible.
