A combined-transform coding (CTC) scheme is proposed to reduce the blocking artifact of conventional block transform coding and hence to improve the subjective performance. The proposed CTC scheme is described and its information-theoretic properties are investigated. Computer simulation results for a class of chest X-ray images are presented. A comparison between the CTC scheme and the conventional discrete cosine transform (DCT) and discrete Walsh-Hadamard transform (DWHT) demonstrates the performance improvement of the proposed scheme. In addition, combined coding can also be used in noiseless coding, yielding a slight improvement in the compression performance if it is used properly
