Several of today's imaging techniques such as CT scan, MRI produces three dimensional data sets obtained by generating multiple slices in a single examination, with each slice representing a different cross section of the body part being imaged.These 3-D volumetric medical images are an important source of digital data that need lossless compression to be stored or transmitted. Several improvements have been made in lossless image compression field. These methods can be roughly divided into
