Volume Data and Wavelet Transforms
July/August 1993 (vol. 13 no. 4)
pp. 50-56

The application of 3D orthogonal wavelet transforms to real volume data is discussed. Examples of the wavelet transform and the reconstruction of 1D functions are presented. The application of the 3D wavelet transform to real volume data generated from a series of 115 slices of magnetic resonance (MR) images is described.
