	%X In this paper we have proposed three and two
stage still gray scale image compressor based on BTC. In our
schemes, we have employed a combination of four techniques
to reduce the bit rate. They are quad tree segmentation, bit
plane omission, bit plane coding using 32 visual patterns and
interpolative bit plane coding. The experimental results show
that the proposed schemes achieve an average bit rate of 0.46
bits per pixel (bpp) for standard gray scale images with an
average PSNR value of 30.25, which is better than the results
from the exiting similar methods based on BTC.
