Storage Compression

In the settings, attribute “StorageCompression”, which type of compression?

JPEG lossy or lossless?

Where can I see compression rules?



When “StorageCompression” is enabled, each DICOM file is compressed with the zlib library before being written on the disk. When a DICOM file is read back, it is uncompressed on-the-fly, transparently to the user.

Thus, the content of the DICOM file is not changed through the compression mechanism (lossless). The compression ratio is hopefully between 2 and 3, which is already interesting for low-end computers.
