Bernhard Preim and Charl Botha have released their second edition of the book “Visual Computing for Medicine” (see also http://medvisbook.com/). Big headlines are Acquisition, Analysis, and Interpretation of Medical Volume Data, Visualization and Exploration of Medical Volume Data, Advanced Medical Visualization Techniques, Visualization of High-Dimensional Medical Image Data, Treatment planning, guidance and training. Of course the book also covers various approaches in Medical Augmented Reality.
Bernhard Preim says: “The new edition of the book „Visual Computing in Medicine“ has a broader scope and involves new chapters, e.g., on human computer interaction related to medical image data, biomedical simulations, projection-based techniques and applications in ENT surgery. The other chapters are carefully updated and provide a link to the current research. In particular, intraoperative visualization, computer-assisted medical education, imaging technologies and virtual endoscopy have been widely extended. For a faster reading of more basic stuff, „advanced topics“ are highlighted and may be skipped in a first reading. In addition to the printed book, five online chapters are available freely at the book website maintained by the authors http://medvisbook.com/.”
