Paper Abstract

Progressive transmission of digital pictures permits the receiver to reconstruct an approximate picture first, then gradually improves the quality of image reconstruction. A performance criterion is formulated for the evaluation of alternative schemes. The use of transform coding techniques to achieve progressive transmission is discussed. Application of the concept of progressive transmission to electronic radiology is introduced, and simulation results for individual images and panels of digital diagnostic images are presented. The relative quality of intermediate image reconstruction seems to be superior to that of other progressive transmission techniques.
