Paper Abstract

The ACR-NEMA Digital Imaging and Communications Committee established a working group to propose means to incorporate a wide variety of current compression techniques in the framework of the ACR-NEMA Standard for optional use. A draft Standard on compression has been circulated for comment. It proposes methods of allowing the use of public domain techniques, both bit preserving and non-bit preserving, predetermined techniques between devices already aware of the selected algorithm, and specification by the transmitting device of both algorithm and parameters prior to transmitting compression data. This paper will report on details of the proposal and the current status. An example for an allowed compression algorithm, is presented.
