A new technique for compression of binary images is proposed. The Radon transform is used to convert a binary image to a set of 1-dimensional (1-D) non-binary sequences, which are coded using 1-D techniques. A binary image can be reconstructed from a very small number of projections and this leads to significant compression. The compression ratio for a binary i n w e of size NxN is inversely proportional to N.
