Survey on Medical Image Compression Using Contourlet Transform

Authors(3) :-V. Anusuya, Dr. V. Srinivasa Raghavan, S. Divyabharathi

Medical image compression is essential nowadays for telemedicine application. Image compression is associated with removing redundant information and transmits required image data. To transmit large amount of data lot of techniques has been implemented in image compression. Image compression methods already implemented for normal images, one dimensional and 2D image. Recent work has been concentrated on medical images. BPC(BitPlane Coding) technique has been implemented in medical image compression. In this paper, presents a research overview of medical image compression using contourlet transform using wavelet transform, EBCOT algorithm and vector quantization, and its techniques with its future scenario.
