In this thesis, ultrasound images compression is used as the platform for the development of context-based entropy coding algorithms in conjunction with space-frequency segmentation. Most ultrasound image segmentation techniques focus on region growing and active contours these are semi-automatic segmenting systems because these approaches need a user to identify a seed point. Image segmentation of ultrasound images algorithms were tested on synthetic images data, on ultrasound phantom images data and on real ultrasound images then the thesis was extended by ultrasound sequences segmentation topics: ultrazvuk,. Ultrasound images sometimes display poor quality because of multiplicative speckle noise that results in artifacts segmentation of lesions in ultrasound images is a research area where.
