A medical video analysis provides a forum for the dissemination of diverse results in the area of medical field. The swiftly sprouting changes in the health care entail the modern advances with imaging. The effect of camera motion from a video stream leads to improper diagnosis in case of medical video processing. Hence, video stabilization technique enables the video stream to generate a stabilized video. Compression also plays a very vital role in the field of clinical and image analysis, since it carries massive information thereby reducing the file size. To further ensure effectiveness in diagnosis, a video stabilization is performed before compression. The results proved that the proposed methodology offered a substantial increase in the quality of video by 1.25 dB peak-signal-to-noise ratio and 0.06 structural similarity index.
