We discuss computationally efficient techniques for confidential storage and transmission of medical image data. Two types of partial encryption techniques based on AES are proposed. The first encrypts a subset of bitplanes of plain image data whereas the second encrypts parts of the JPEG2000 bitstream. We find that encrypting between 20% and 50% of the visual data is sufficient to provide high confidentiality.
