18 July 1999 JPEG/wavelet ultrasound compression study

The purpose of the study was to evaluate the effects of lossy compression on grayscale US images to determine how much compression can be applied, and still have the images be 'acceptable for diagnostic purposes'. The study considered how the acquisition technique influences how much compression can be applied. For DICOM digital images, the study considered the how text affects the compressibility of the image. The lossy compression technique that were considered include JPEG, Set Partitioning in Hierarchical Trees Wavelet, and a Modified version of SPIHT Wavelet.
