We address compression and transmission issues related to images in the National Library of Medicine's Visible Human Project. In total, these images amount to about 235 Gbytes of data, challenging conventional storage, retrieval, and transmission methods. We discuss lossless and lossy methods to compress the images. We also consider advanced transmission-control protocol approaches plus a multisocket technique we developed for transmitting images over wide-area networks
