The present paper deals with the development and evaluation of a new compression scheme, for angiocardiography images. This scheme provides considerable compression of the medical data file, through two different stages. The first stage obliterates the redundancy inside a single frame domain since the second stage obliterates the redundancy among the sequential frames. Within these stages the employed data compression ratio can be easily adjusted according to the needs of the angiocardiography applications, where still or moving (in slow or full motion) images are hauled. The developed scheme has been tailored on the real needs of the diagnosis oriented conferencing-teleworking processes, where Unified Image Viewing facilities are required.
