Wavelet Based SPIHT Compression for DICOM Images

University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för datavetenskap, fysik och matematik, DFM

Abstract: Generally, image viewers do not include the scalability for the image compressionand ecient encoding and decoding for easy transmission. They alsonever consider the specic requirements of the heterogeneous networks constitutedby the Global Packet Radio Service(GPRS), Universal Mobile TelecommunicationSystem(UMTS), Wireless Local Area Network(WLAN) and DigitalVideo Broadcasting(DVB-H). This work contains the medical application withviewer for the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine(DICOM) imagesas its core content. This application discusses the scalable wavelet-basedcompression, retrival and the decompression of the DICOM images. This proposedapplication is compatible with the mobile phones activated in the heterogeneousnetwoks. This paper also explains about the performance issues whenthis application is used in prototype heterogenous networks.
