Lossy compression included in DSx demo

Owing to the immense response we’ve received over the last 48 hours, and the frequency of you that requested Lossy JPEG compression in the DICOM Shrinkinator demo, we have relented. Three lossy formats are now included in the evaluation, they are:

  • JPEG Baseline (Process 1)
  • JPEG Extended (Process 2 & 4)
  • JPEG-LS Lossy (Near-lossless)

These formats maintain a quality factor of 0.9, or 90%. Additional control is provided only in enterprise versions of DSx.

Over the coming weeks we will be posting additional updates that improve the granularity of compression formats, as well as allow for finer-grained control over filters. Stay tuned!
