Lossless image compression has one of its important applications in the field of medical images. Efficient storage, transmission, management and retrieval of the huge data produced by the medical images have nowadays become very much complex. The solution to this complex problem lies in the lossless compression of the medical images. The medical data is compressed in such a way so that no medical information is lost. The super spatial structure prediction algorithm is used to find the optimal prediction of structured components in an image. The block matching is achieved using inverse diamond search algorithm. And finally LZ8 algorithm is applied to achieve the higher compression ratio of the medical images.
