About this book


This edited volume explores the use of technology to enable us to visualise the life sciences in a more meaningful and engaging way. It will enable those interested in visualisation techniques to gain a better understanding of the applications that can be used in visualisation, imaging and analysis, education, engagement and training.

The reader will be able to explore the utilisation of technologies from a number of fields to enable an engaging and meaningful visual representation of the biomedical sciences, with a focus in this volume related to anatomy, and clinically applied scenarios.

The first four chapters highlight the diverse uses of CT and MRI scanning. These chapters demonstrate the uses of modern scanning techniques currently in use both clinically and in research and include vascular modelling, uses of the stereoscopic model, MRI in neurovascular and neurodegenerative diseases, and how they can also be used in a forensic setting in identification.

The remaining six chapters truly demonstrate the diversity technology has in education, training and patient engagement. Multimodal technologies are discussed and include art and history collections, photogrammetry and games engines, augmented reality and review of the current literature for patient rehabilitation and education of the health professions. These chapters really do provide “something for everyone” whether you are a student, faculty member, or part of our curious global population interested in technology and healthcare.
