Medical imaging is now an essential support for screening, diagnosis, treatment protocols implementation, patient monitoring, operative preparation and post-operative control. In addition, scientific and technological advances make it possible to set up new imaging methods, often complementary to the existing ones, but also to gradually improve their accuracy. The result is an increase, in the acquisitions number made for the same patient and for information produced for each examination. Since these images must be kept for a certain period, the storage space required for archiving all this data is constantly evolving and images are often viewed locally, and it can be viewed remotely through networks with limited bandwidth such as the long term evolution (LTE) mobile network. The use of compression quickly proves to be essential, whether to facilitate storage or for these data mass browsing remotely. The results of the work carried out in this article are mainly focused on the medical images compression by the set partitioning hierarchical trees (SPIHT) method, which, in fact, allow a significant reduction for data. We are also interested in the transmission of these images on an LTE mobile radio channel in a way that can provide a high bitrate with good transmission quality, by exploiting the channel coding technique, which is effective in combating the noise introduced during the transmission of these images.
