Following on from the success of the first four volumes, Biomedical Visualisation, Volume 5, will demonstrate the numerous options we have in using technology to enhance, support and challenge education. The chapters presented here highlight the wide use of tools, techniques and methodologies we have at out disposal in the digital age. These can be used to image the human body, educate patients, the public, faculty and students in the plethora of how to use cutting edge technologies in visualising the human body and its processes, creation and integration of platforms for teaching and education, to visualising biological structures and pathological processes. Chapters 1 – 4 Applications of CT and MRI scanning 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. Chapters 5 - 10 Applications 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.
