The optimal linear block transform for coding images is well known to be the Karhunen-Loeve transformation (KLT). However, the assumption of stationarity in the optimality condition is far from valid for images. Images are composed of regions whose local statistics may vary widely across an image. While the use of adaptation can result in improved(More)
This paper presents a tutorial overview of neural networks as signal processing tools for image compression. They are well suited to the problem of image compression due to their massively parallel and distributed architecture. Their characteristics are analogous to some of the features of our own visual system, which allow us to process visual information(More)
This paper proposes three different architectures for implementing a least mean square (LMS) adaptive filtering algorithm, using a 16 bit fixed-point arithmetic representation. These architectures are implemented using the Xilinx multimedia board as an audio processing system. The on-board AC97 audio codec is used for audio capture/playback, and the(More)
Applying security to the transmitted medical images is important to protect the privacy of patients. Secure transmission requires cryptography, and watermarking to achieve confidentiality, and data integrity. Improving cryptography part needs to use an encryption algorithm that stands for a long time against different attacks. The proposed method is based(More)
The performance of a new, neural network-based image compression method was evaluated on digital radiographs for use in an educational environment. The network uses a mixture of principal components (MPC) representation to effect optimally adaptive transform coding of an image and has significant computational advantages over other techniques.
