Paper Abstract

We have designed an image compression scheme based on multiresolution decomposition using the quadrature mirror filters (QMFs), and applied it to chest radiographs. In order to assess the preservation of diagnostic image quality, we performed image review study using a diagnostic workstation. From the result of review by diagnostic radiologists, our method may be available in clinical practice.
