Paper Abstract

This paper examines the effect that transmission errors have on the quality of radiologic images. Since the data compression of digitized images is explored as a means for reduction in storage requirements and transfer time, the authors examine the image quality of both compressed and uncompressed images when bit errors occur. This is necessary because a wide variety of communication media and protocols can be used for image transfer, each with different reliability levels. The trade-off between compression, image quality and reliability is explored as a first step for the examination of the issues related to the transfer of images between geographically remote sites. Thus, the main objective of this paper is to identify issues and parameters related to the interconnection of geographically dispersed picture archiving and communication systems.
