Medical Images are the digital representation of the body images. The medical imaging technology has a tremendous growth in past few decades. The amount of diagnostic data produced in a medical image is vast and this could create several problems when sending the medical data through a network. To overcome this problem there is a great need for compression of medical images for communication and storage purposes. Now a day’s medical image compression plays a key role as hospitals to have high image quality with relevant diagnostic information and with less storage requirements so that it can be easily transmitted over a network and can be accessed within a limited time. Current compression schemes provide a high rate of compression with a considerable loss of quality. This paper discusses a survey and analysis of different image compression schemes for the medical images.
