This study presents a new approach to improve the echocardiogram transmissions overWiMAX networks. Using a compression method based on visualization modes and a reliable method that adapts to the channel conditions, overall performance results are improved compared to classical approaches. The echocardiogram transmission using a compression method based on visualization modes requires lower bandwidth than without considering visualization modes. Furthermore, if the proposed reliability method is also used, the echocardiogram is more often visualized with adequate clinical quality than compressing the echocardiogram without distinguishing the visualization modes and without using a reliability method for the available dataset. The reduction in the bandwidth ranges from 29 kbps to 166 kbps for the simulated scenarios. © 2013 CCAL.
