Paper Abstract

Image compression in microscopy is a valuable technique, in particular if applied to multidimensional data. Information- preserving and competitive information-losing compression is applied to microscopical data and the resulting image quality is evaluated on a quantitative basis both in the spatial and frequency domain. Included are image data featuring different signal-to-noise ratios, but also voxel data for volume representations as well as graphical data for surface representations. The effect of compression on 3-D visualization and image management with data bases is included.
