Proprietary compression schemes have a cost and risk associated with their support, end of life and interoperability. Standards reduce this cost and risk. The new JPEG-LS process (ISO/IEC 14495-1), and the lossless mode of the proposed JPEG 2000 scheme (ISO/IEC CD15444-1), new standard schemes that may be incorporated into DICOM, are evaluated here.

A multi-institution effort was conducted to assess the visual quality performance of various JPEG 2000 (Joint Photographic Experts Group) lossy compression options for medical imagery. The purpose of this effort was to provide clinical data to DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) WG IV to support recommendations to the JPEG 2000 committee(More)
Data sharing is increasingly recognized as critical to cross-disciplinary research and to assuring scientific validity. Despite National Institutes of Health and National Science Foundation policies encouraging data sharing by grantees, little data sharing of clinical data has in fact occurred. A principal reason often given is the potential of inadvertent(More)
PURPOSE To compare CT and radionuclide imaging of osmotic blood-brain barrier disruption. To develop a quantitative method for imaging osmotic blood-brain barrier disruption and to see if iopamidol could be safely given intravenously in conjunction with blood-brain barrier disruption. METHODS Forty-five blood-brain barrier disruption procedures were(More)
This article summarizes the consensus reached at the Summit on Color in Medical Imaging held at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on May 8-9, 2013, co-sponsored by the FDA and ICC (International Color Consortium). The purpose of the meeting was to gather information on how color is currently handled by medical imaging systems to identify areas where(More)
The authors present what is believed to be the first description of an intracranial arterial aneurysm attributable to birth trauma. A male neonate, the product of a precipitious, instrumented, footling breech delivery, exhibited seizures at the age of 18 hours. A computerized tomography scan of the head showed hemorrhage along the tentorium with a globular(More)
Background. Imaging biomarkers hold tremendous promise for precision medicine clinical applications. Development of such biomarkers relies heavily on image post-processing tools for automated image quantitation. Their deployment in the context of clinical research necessitates interoperability with the clinical systems. Comparison with the established(More)
