PURPOSE To assess the effect of wavelet-based compression of posteroanterior chest radiographs on detection of small uncalcified pulmonary nodules and fibrosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Computed tomography (CT) of the chest was used to identify 20 patients with normal posteroanterior chest radiographs, 20 with a solitary uncalcified pulmonary nodule 1-2 cm(More)
The purpose of the study was to evaluate the effects of lossy compression on grayscale ultrasound images to determine how much compression can be applied while still maintaining images that are acceptable for diagnostic purposes. The study considered how the acquisition technique (video frame-grabber versus directly acquired in digital form) influences how(More)
This article will take an analytical look at how lossy Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) and wavelet image compression techniques affect medical image content. It begins with a brief explanation of how the JPEG and wavelet algorithms work, and describes in general terms what effect they can have on image quality (removal of noise, blurring, and(More)
