Color Medical Image Compression Techniques

  • Rohit M. Thanki
  • Ashish Kothari


This chapter covers various conventional and CS theory-based compression techniques for medical images. These techniques are implemented using image transforms such as DCT, DWT, and hybridization of it. The chapter also gives a performance analysis of these techniques using various evaluations parameters such as CR, RMSE, and PSNR.
