During the last decade, image and signal compression for storage and transmission purpose has seen tremendous expansion. But what about medical data compression? Should a medical image or a physiological signal be processed and compressed in the same way as any other data? The progress made in imaging systems, storage systems and telemedicine makes compression in this field particularly interesting. However, this compression has to be adapted to the specificities of biomedical data which contain diagnosis information.
As such, this book offers an overview of compression techniques applied to medical data, including: physiological signals, MRI,
X-ray, ultrasound images, static and dynamic volumetric images.
Researchers, clinicians, engineers and professionals in this area, along with postgraduate students in the signal and image processing field, will find this book of great interest.
