Paper Abstract

The IWT (Integer Wavelet Transform) can achieve genuine lossless image compression and allow both lossy and lossless compression using a single bit-stream. However, using the IWT instead of the DWT (Discrete Wavelet Transform) will degrade the performances of the lossy compression because the filter structure of IWT and the nonlinear rounding operation. In this paper, a new integer wavelet decomposition scheme is proposed based on subband local information statistic model for the medical images. The high frequency subbands can be decomposed again according to the statistic results of the subband coefficient entropies. The results of several experiments for the medical images presented in this paper demonstrate the importance subband information statistic in the integer wavelet decomposition. Furthermore, this paper shows that appropriate subband local information statistic model improves the performance of compression algorithm after the multilevel subband decomposition is performed. So we expect this idea is valuable for future research on medical image coding.
