Image compression can be done in two ways namely lossy or lossless. Lossy methods are used for expected results like photographs where some negligible loss of data is tolerable. Rapid growth of medical science such as ehealth and telemedicine requires lossless Image compression. The correlation and redundancy which exists across different medical images are considered to achieve better compression ratio. . Better compression results in less storage and less overhead while transmission on the

The original image is compressed using PCA algorithm and then using lossless coding methods. PCA is used to find the correlation among the similar medical images. PCA algorithm is used with only some principal components. General Terms Lossless Image Compression.
