The wavelets are a recent tool for signal processing analysis, for multiple time scale. It gives rise to many applications in various fields such as geophysics, astrophysics, telecommunications, imaging, and video coding. They are the basis of new analytical techniques and signal synthesis and some nice applications for general problems such as compression. This paper introduces an application for color medical image compression based on the wavelet transform coupled with SP?HT coding algorithm. In order to enhance the compression by this algorithm, we have compared the results obtained with wavelet transform application in natural, medical and satellite color image field. For this reason, we evaluated two parameters known for their calculation speed. The first parameter is the PSNR; the second is MSSIM (structural similarity).
