Electrocardiograph (ECG) compression techniques are gaining momentum due to the huge database requirements and wide band communication channels needed to maintain high quality ECG transmission. Advances in computer software and hardware enable the birth of new techniques in ECG compression, aiming at high compression rates. In general, most of the(More)
Ventricular tachyarrhythmias, in particular ventricular fibrillation (VF), are the primary arrhythmic events in the majority of patients suffering from sudden cardiac death. Attention has focused upon these articular rhythms as it is recognized that prompt therapy can lead to a successful outcome. There has been considerable interest in analysis of the(More)
In this work, a new approach is proposed that deals with blocking effects in JPEG compressed images. High-frequency details of the coded images are mainly contaminated by quantization noise. Preserving the image details and reducing the effect of quantization noise as much as possible can improve the ability of any enhancing method. To achieve this goal(More)
Technically, a feature represents a distinguishing property, a recognizable measurement, and a functional component obtained from a section of a pattern. Extracted features are meant to minimize the loss of important information embedded in the signal. In addition, they also simplify the amount of resources needed to describe a huge set of data accurately.(More)
The author proposed an effective wavelet-based ECG compression algorithm (Rajoub, 2002). The reported extraordinary performance motivated us to explore the findings and to use it in our research activity. During the implementation of the proposed algorithm several important points regarding accuracy, methodology, and coding were found to be improperly(More)
In this work, we propose an efficient framework for compressing and displaying medical images. Image compression for medical applications, due to available Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine requirements, is limited to the standard discrete cosine transform-based joint picture expert group. The objective of this work is to develop a set of(More)
