In current years, improving the Compression Ratio (CR) in medical imaging is essential and becomes big challenge in the field of biomedical. In that direction we have done optimization before biomedical image compression. For the same we have used the image enhancement techniques. For the enhancement of an image we have used Contrast Limited Adaptive Histogram Equalization (CLAHE) and Decorrelation Stretch (DCS) algorithms. By optimizing an image before compression we have achieved better Compression Ratio (CR) and Peak Signal to Noise Ratio (PSNR) than existing methods of an image compression. Mainly results are compared with Oscillation Concept method of an image compression with and without optimization.
