Abstract:- Data compression is the technique to reduce the redundancies and irrelevancies in data representation in order to decrease data storage requirements and hence communication costs. Reducing the storage requirement is equivalent to increasing the capacity of the storage medium and hence communication bandwidth. The objective of this paper is to compare a set of different wavelets for image compression. Image compression using wavelet transforms results in an improved compression ratio, PSNR and Elapsed time is compared using various wavelet families such as Haar, Symlets and Biorthogonal using Discrete Wavelet Transform and Fast wavelet transform. In DWT wavelets are discretely sampled. The Discrete Wavelet Transform analyzes the signal at different frequency bands with different resolutions by decomposing the signal into an approximation and detail information. The Fast wavelet transform has the advantages over DWT is higher compression ratio and fast processing time using different wavelets.The study compares DWT and FWT approach in terms of PSNR, Compression Ratios and elapsed time for different Images. Complete analysis is performed at second and third level of decomposition using Haar Wavelet, Symlets wavelet and Biorthogonal wavelet using medical images. .
