Abstract
The data rate requirements for raw data transmission through the slip ring of a CT scanner can be quite challenging. While lossy compression can offer a significant reduction in data set size, it introduces errors to the measurements. The design and evaluation of compression methods need to take into account the nature of the sinogram. In this paper, we present two compression noise shaping methods for fixed rate lossy compression of CT raw data that achieve a lower error level in the center region of the reconstructed image: error feedback filters and sub-band coding with bit allocation.
