Paper Abstract

Due to the huge amount of data and the increasing usage, compression of 4D medical data sets is essential. These datasets consist of a number of sampled volume elements varying in time and are compressed either with spatial transformation based (e.g. JPEG2000-3D) or motion estimation based schemes. This paper presents a combined approach incorporating both, temporal and spatial information at the same time to compress 4D medical datasets. It is adopting a very similar four-dimensional Multi-View-Coding (MVC) scheme which is known from video processing to 4D medical datasets and compares experimental results with H.264 compression. Rate distortion characteristics show the advantages of such a combined spatio-temporal approach.
