Paper Abstract

Volume data such as those acquired by magnetic resonance imaging techniques can be compressed efficiently using the wavelet transform. Wavelet compression methods need to retain both the value and the location of the significant coefficients. We present experimental results demonstrating the use of zerotree encoding methods in wavelet compression can enhance the ability to further compress volume data.
