In this study, we present Embedded Zerotree Wavelet (EZW) algorithm to compress the image using different wavelet filters such as Biorthogonal, Coiflets, Daubechies, Symlets and Reverse Biorthogonal and to remove noise by setting appropriate threshold value while decoding. Compression methods are important in telemedicine applications by reducing number of bits per pixel to adequately represent the image. Data storage requirements are reduced and transmission efficiency is improved because of compressing the image. The EZW algorithm is an effective and computationally efficient technique in image coding. Obtaining the best image quality for a given bit rate and accomplishing this task in an embedded fashion are the two problems addressed by the EZW algorithm. A technique to decompose the image using wavelets has gained a great deal of popularity in recent years. Apart from very good compression performance, EZW algorithm has the property that the bitstream can be truncated at any point and still be decoded with a good quality image. All the standard wavelet filters are used and the results are compared with different thresholds in the encoding section. Bit rate versus PSNR simulation results are obtained for the image 256x256 barbara with different wavelet filters. It shows that the computational overhead involved with Daubechies wavelet filters but are produced better results. Like even missing details i.e., higher frequency components are picked by them which are missed by other family of wavelet filters.
