Real-time transmission of 2D echocardiograms over WiMax networks

This study presents a methodology to transmit 2D echocardiogram video over WiMAX networks in real-time. Before transmission the echocardiogram has to be compressed. In order to compress the echocardiogram the 3D SPIHT algorithm was used. To guarantee the clinical quality of the compressed echocardiogram a clinical evaluation of the compressed echocardiogram… CONTINUE READING
