26 June 1998 Compression for pre-scan-converted ultrasound sequences
Author Affiliations +
In this paper, we describe an algorithm for compression of pre-scan-converted ultrasound tissue data. Between compression ratios of 8:1 and 120:1, we have found that there is a significant reduction in distortion using compression prior to scan conversion rather than after scan conversion. We have also found an additional improvement using wavelets, zerotree quantization and arithmetic coding rather than standard block DCT compression.
