Paper Abstract

In this paper, correlation properties of a class of chest X-ray medical images are examined and different 1-D and 2-D correlation models are applied to this class of image sources. Correlation structures for different scanning methods including row-by-row, column-by- column, diagonal and Peano are compared. It is suggested that the Peano scanning best reserves the inter-pixel correlation, which coincides with an earlier observation made by Lempel and Ziv. The rate-distortion properties are also discussed in terms of different 1-D and 2-D correlation models.
