    • International Journal of Graphics and Multimedia (IJGM), ISSN 0976 – 6448(Print),ISSN 0976 – 6456(Online) Volume 4, Issue 1, January - April 2013, © IAEME1A NOVEL TECHNIQUE IN SPIHT FOR MEDICAL IMAGECOMPRESSIONShipra Gupta1, Chirag Sharma21(Computer Science and Engg , Lovely Professional University, Hoshiarpur, India)2(Computer Science and Engg, Lovely Professional University, Jalandhar, India)ABSTRACTMedical science grows very fast and each hospital needs to store high volume of dataabout patients and in this field the images produce by the modality is in the form of large file, inorder to get the opinion from other doctors images are send to other place using electronicmedia. Compression of images needs to be apply as the size of image is very large to send, butwith compression there is loss of information in the image. In order to minimize the loss and toincrease the quality of image requires compression is to be done, multi wavelet transformationtechnology plays a vital role. So, in this paper we consider that multi wavelet with Region ofInterest (ROI) on the selecting portion will not only give the quality but also reduce the loss ofinformation from image. And we are going to implement the multi wavelet transformation withModified Fast Haar Wavelet Transform (MFHWT) in Set Partitioning in Hierarchical Treesalgorithm (SPIHT).Keywords: Medical Image, MFHWT, Multi wavelet, ROI, SPIHT.I. INTRODUCTIONImage compression is the process of encoding information using fewer bits.Compression is useful because it helps to reduce the consumption of expensive resources, suchas hard disk space or transmission bandwidth. It also reduces the time required for images to besent over the Internet or download from web pages. It also helps in accelerating transmissionspeed [1]. Data compression methods are usually classified as either lossless or lossy methods[1] [8].INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF GRAPHICS ANDMULTIMEDIA (IJGM)ISSN 0976 - 6448 (Print)ISSN 0976 -6456 (Online)Volume 4, Issue 1, January - April 2013, pp. 01-08© IAEME: www.iaeme.com/ijgm.aspJournal Impact Factor (2013): 4.1089 (Calculated by GISI)www.jifactor.comIJGM© I A E M E

Wavelet TransformWhen the signal in time for its frequency content is analyzed then in that waveletfunctions are used. Multi resolution hierarchical characteristics are provided by wavelet basedcompression. Hence image can be compressed at different levels of resolution. It can besequentially processed from low resolution to high resolution [1] [8]. It has excellent energycompaction property which suitable for exploiting redundancy in an image to achievecompression [2] [8]. Wavelets are localized in the both time and frequency domains. Hence it iseasy to capture local features in a signal [1] [8]. A newer alternative to the wavelet transform isthe multi wavelet transform. Multi wavelets are similar to wavelets but have some importantdifferences. In particular, whereas wavelets have an associated scaling function and waveletfunction, multi wavelets have two or more scaling and wavelet functions [3].Fig. 1 (a) Wavelet (b) multi wavelets [3] [8]2. Haar TransformThe Haar wavelet transformation is a simple form of compression involved in averagingand differencing term, sorting detail coefficients; eliminate data and reconstructing the matrixsuch that the resulting matrix is similar to initial matrix [4].3. Modified Fast Haar Wavelet Transform (MFHWT)MFHWT can be done by just taking (w+x+y+z)/4 instead of (x+y)/2 for approximationand (w+x-y-z)/4 instead of (x-y)/2 for differencing process. 4 nodes are considered at a time[1]. Also, it is used to reduce the memory requirements and the amount of inefficient movementof Haar coefficients [5]. Thus MFHWT reduce the calculation work of Haar transform.4. SPIHTSPIHT algorithm is one of the powerful algorithm for the compression. After wavelettransform SPIHT algorithm is used to encode the coefficients of wavelet. In SPIHT sorting isdone by comparing two elements at a time and results in yes/no states. In this sorting passcoefficients are categorizes into 3 lists [8]:

In implementation, we grouped together the entries in the LIP andLIS which have the same parent into an entry element. For each entry element in LIP, weestimated a pattern in both encoder and decoder to describe the significance status of each entryin the current sorting pass. If the result of the significance test of the entry item is the same asthe specified pattern, we can use one bit to represent the status of the whole entry atom whichotherwise had two entries and representation of significance by two bits. If the significance testresult does not match the pattern, we transmitted the result of the significance test for each entryin the atom. In Refinement pass for each entry in the LSP, except those included in the lastsorting pass , output nth bit of the entry [6]. There are two passes in SPIHT one is sorting passwhich is initial step and other is refinement pass. In sorting pass sorting is done by comparingtwo elements at a time, and each comparison results in yes/no. it checks the significance ofcoefficients present in LIS. If the coefficients are significant then it results in yes and move toLSP. If they are not significant it results in no. In refinement pass it is performed after sortingpass the significant coefficients which we get from sorting pass are send to decoder[8].5. Region of Interest (ROI)Region of interest is the selected portion of the image which contains the information thatis required. ROI is a feature introduced to overcome the loss of information in parts of an imagewhich are more important than others [7]. ROI can be defined by a user and they are encodedwith better quality than the rest of the image [8].6. Medical ImagesMedical science grows very fast and hence each hospital needs to store high volume ofdata about the patients. And medical images are one of the most important data about patients.Medical images are important as they are used by doctors in order to keep record of patients forlong term. In order to keep the record of patients for long terms they are compressed usingcompression techniques so that large amount of data can be store. There are many types ofmedical images that are used to detect disease of patients. MRI is magnetic resonance imagewhich is used to get information about tissues, organs in human body. Other types are X-ray,CT(computer tomography) , ECG(electrocardiogram) [8].II. PROPOSED SCHEMEPurposed algorithm modifies the existing SPIHT algorithm with multi wavelettransformation and multi wavelet decomposition will be performed with MFHWT. To performthe operation of compression using improved SPIHT, following algorithm is used:

The image quality provides some measure ofcloseness between two digital images by exploiting the differences in the statistical distributionof pixel values. The most commonly used error metrics used for comparing compression areMean Square Error (MSE) and Peak Signal to Noise Ratio (PSNR).PSNR computes Peak Signal to Noise Ratio, in decibels, between two images. This ratio isused to provide the quality measurement between the original and a compressed image. Higherthe PSNR more will be the quality.MSE computes Mean Square Error between the compressed image and original image. Lowerthe value of MSE lowers the error.III.

RESULTS AND CALCULATIONSAfter the experiments performed on Images in MATLAB, we have realized that abovefactors determine the quality of reconstructed image. Our technique is better than those of othertechniques of compression, because this technique provides better quality, avoid loss ofinformation. The quality of image is measured by the Peak Signal to Noise Ratio (PSNR).Following table provides the PSNR values on the image.Table1. Calculation of PSNR values by applying SPIHT and Improved SPIHT.V. CONCLUSIONA number of techniques have been proposed on compression; however our proposedtechnique is better than other techniques as this technique provide more quality and less loss ofinformation. The proposed compression scheme is evaluated on the medical images tocompress them with better quality so that there is no loss of information. And can be send todoctors without any loss of information with better quality. Our proposed compression schemeis based on ROI that provide the part of image that contains the information which is required.REFERENCES[1] Kaur Navjot, Singh Preeti, (2012), “A new method of image compression using improvedSPIHT and MFHWT”, IJLRST, Vol.1, Pp-124-126.[2] Liu Bo, Wang Jianjun, (2009), “Modified SPIHT based image compression algorithm forhardware implementation”, IEEE, Pp-572-576.[3] Bell .E Amy, Martin .B Michael, (2001), “New image compression techniques using multiwavelet and multi wavelet packets”, IEEE, Vol.10, Pp-500-510.[4] Adams Damien, Patterson Halsey, (2006), “The haar wavelet transform: Compression andReconstruction”.[5] U.
