Stripe-based Spiht Lossy Compression of Volumetric Medical Images for Low Memory Usage and Uniform Reconstruction Quality

Abstract

This paper presents a low memory implementation of efficient lossy volumetric medical image compression using the Set Partitioning in Hierarchical Trees (SPIHT) algorithm. The coding units in this three-dimensional wavelet transform and compression method are short sequences of horizontal stripes cut from the sequence of slices in the volumetric image. As… (More)
