Abstract: Medical images are much important in the field of medicine ,all these medical images are need to be stored for future reference of the patients and their hospital findings hence, the medical image need to undergo the process of compression before storing it. On these days of medical advancement there exist many compression techniques. This paper investigates mainly on the various types of medical image compression techniques that are existing, and putting it all together for a literature survey. Scope of this study focuses on the different available medical image compression techniques with their performance results.

Keywords: Discrete Cosine Transform, Discrete Wavelet Transform, Medical Image Compression, Set Partitioning in Hierarchical Trees.
