Abstract

A frame-grabbed ultrasound image was selected from each of 300 patients during the course of their routine clinical practice. Color and grayscale ultrasound images compressed with Joint Photographic Expert's Group (JPEG) standards at approximately 9:1 were indistinguishable from the originals for primary diagnostic purposes. Since it is supported by the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) standard, images compressed with the JPEG baseline standard can be stored by and sent to conforming DICOM devices, making it possible to use loss compression for primary diagnostic purposes on standards-based picture archiving and communication systems (PACS).
