The aim of the study is to reduce the size required for storage along with decreasing the bitrate and the bandwidth for the process of sending and receiving the image. It also aims to decrease the time required for the process as much as possible. This study proposes a novel system for efficient lossy volumetric medical image compression using Stationary Wavelet Transform and Linde-Buzo-Gray for Vector Quantization. The system makes use of a combination of Linde-Buzo-Gray vector quantization technique for lossy compression along with Arithmetic coding and Huffman coding for lossless compression. The system proposed uses Stationary Wavelet Transform and then compares the results obtained to Discrete Wavelet Transform, Lifting Wavelet Transform and Discrete Cosine Transform at three decomposition levels. The system also compares the results obtained using transforms with only Arithmetic Coding and Huffman Coding for Lossless Compression.The results show that the system proposed outperforms the others.
