With the advent of telemedicine in the 1990s, the technological revolution in healthcare became irrevocable. From electronic patient records to electronic representations of the patient, by the end of the ‘90s, computers played an integral role in every aspect of healthcare.

This book contains the papers presented at the conference Medicine Meets Virtual Reality 5, held in San Diego, California, USA, in January 1997. The papers cover a number of topics including: virtual reality and mental health; technological innovation; scientific and clinical visualization; surgical tools for minimally invasive therapies; the global healthcare grid; tooling up for the future of healthcare; the transformation of communication; and the market for emerging technologies.

The book will be of interest to all those interested in the development of medical informatics and virtual reality in healthcare.
