Paper Abstract

The miniature image display is used as a visual directory of images in an examination to facilitate image selection on a display console. However, the miniature images, generated from the patient image database, are redundant information for a picture archiving system. In a compressed picture archiving system, this is neither economic nor efficient without further design of both the display and the compression subsystems. This paper reports some possible image compression algorithms, with proper image decomposition methods, which can be used efficiently for the miniature image predisplay and the full resolution diagnostic image display by sharing the same compressed image database.
