In this work, lossless grayscale image compression methods are compared on a medical image database. The database contains 10 different types of images with bit rates varying from 8 to 16 bits per pixel. The total number of test images was about 3000, originating from 125 different patient studies. Methods used for compressing the images include seven methods designed for grayscale images and 18 ordinary general-purpose compression programs. Furthermore, four compressed image file formats were… CONTINUE READING
