Abstract

This paper presents a new scheme for compression of ultrasound images based on a variant of Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT), called \shape adaptive DCT" (SA DCT). This method exploits the fact that the clinical information of echo-cardiographic images does not occupy the whole image. SA DCT is a block based scheme that has been designed speci cally for… (More)
