Compressed image will always reduce the image fidelity. This is especially so if the image is compressed at lower bit rates, which most of the time cannot be tolerated. Compression is necessary in medical field due to the limited transmission bandwidth and storage capacity. In this paper, performance of the controversial lossy compression on medical… CONTINUE READING
