It was developed by the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) and was meant to standardize the imaging file format for distribution and viewing of medical images.
A file with .emz extension is a compressed container of Enhanced Metafile (.emf file). It follows GZIP compression algorithm and takes less storage space due to compression. The small file size makes it more easy to transfer EMZ files over the network.
