Electronic books.
The book offers papers on many aspects of electronic technology in healthcare. Core areas are imaging, simulation, visualization, data networks, sensors, robotics, and displays. Medical applications include information-guided surgery, education and procedural training, telemedicine, immersive environments, stereoscopic projection, diagnostic tools, rehabilitation, and augmented reality. The papers describe both completed projects and recent developments in ongoing research. The book is a the collection of papers of the 10th annual "Medicine Meets Virtual Reality" conference (January 2002). This volume is a resource for computer scientists working in medical context, and for creators of data-focused products for clinical care, medical education, and procedural training.
