The research investigates the various medical image compression platforms so, as to derived with the most efficient and effective scheme. Medical image compression require more proactive scheme that maintains vital features of patients. Several compression methods were applied and Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT) proved to have a superior compression ratio as opposed to Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) and Huffman coding. The proposed study indicated that the recovered medical images had similar result compared to the original image data. Finally, the research mitigated the space storage issue of hard disks, reduce transmission time, improved on patient’s mobility and the high cost of medical hardware devices.
