Paper Abstract

In this paper, we describe the implementation and performance of a system for compression of ultrasound sequences based on 2D and 3D subband coding of the pre-scan- converted data and scan conversion. The system is designed for encoding and decoding within ultrasound machines as well as decoding on an external computer. Performance of the encoding and decoding operations and the effect of compression on the quality of the ultrasound sequences are quantitatively evaluated.
