The utilisation of technologies in the life sciences, medicine, dentistry, surgery and the allied health professions has been utilised at an exponential rate over recent years. The way we view and examine data now is significantly different tp what has been done perhaps ten or twenty years ago. With the growth, development and improvement of imaging techniques like CT, MRI and microscopic data visualisation techniques, the way we are able to interact with data is much more engaging than it has ever been. Indeed, with immersive technologies like augmented, mixed and virtual reality, coupled with 3D printing technologies and new methods to scan, like photogrammetry, we are at a pivotal point. These technologies have been used to enable improved visualisation in the biomedical fields, but also how we engage our future generations of practitioners when they are students within our educational environment. Never before have we had such a wide range of tools and technologies available to engage our end-stage user. Therefore, it is a perfect time to bring this together to showcase and highlight the great investigative works that is going on globally. This book will truly showcase the amazing work that our global colleagues are investigating, and researching in, ultimately to improve student and patient education, understanding and engagement. By highlighting innovative examples of co-creation approaches, and engaging the learners and patient’s, we can truly advance our engagement with everyone using these tools and technologies. By sharing best practice and innovation we can truly aid our global development in understanding how best to use technology for the benefit of society as a whole.
