Title Computer simulation and visualization in medicine
Date 2000
Description The goals of medical simulation and visualization are multifaceted. While some simulations and visualizations facilitate diagnosis, others help physicians plan surgery, therapy, and other forms of treatment. Still other simulation and visualization techniques are used for medical training and to acquire a better understanding of human physiology. Among the most exciting and pressing problems facing computer scientists today are those involving the use of computers in medical applications. With the help of computers, the medical community now verges on important breakthroughs in diagnosing, controlling, treating, and even curing numerous life-threatening conditions, including heart disease and a variety of cancers.
