Compression of M-FISH images using 3-D ESCOT Conference Paper uri icon


  • This paper introduces a lossy to lossless coding technique for compression of multitarget fluorescence in situ hybridization (M-FISH) images using 3-D embedded subband coding with optimal truncation (3-D ESCOT) [3]. With a lifting-based integer wavelet decomposition, 3-D ESCOT achieves about twice as much compression as Lempel-Ziv (WinZip) coding - the current method for archiving M-FISH images. The lossy coding performance of 3-D ESCOT is significantly better than that of 2-D based JPEG-2000.
