Paper Abstract

Wavelet-based image compression is receiving significant attention because of its potential for good image quality at low bit rates. In this paper, we describe and analyze a lossy wavelet compression scheme that uses direct extensions of the JPEG quantization and Huffman encoding strategies to provide high compression efficiency with reasonable complexity. The focus is on the compression of 12-bit medical images obtained from computed radiography and mammography, but the general methods and conclusions presented in this paper are applicable to a wide range of image types.
