Excerpts from full review posted Oct 23 2012 to Computing Reviews [Review #: CR140617 (1302-0092)]

 …This book offers a complete view of virtual reality in medicine, covering the fundamentals of VR (the first six chapters), applications of VR in medicine (rehabilitation in chapter 7, medical training in chapter 8, and planning and intraoperative support in chapter 9), medical model generation (chapter 10), and soft tissue deformation models (chapter 11).

The book is very well structured, with references in every chapter and a valuable index at the end. High-quality color pictures illustrate the written text.

…Thus, it is mainly useful to students in engineering and computer science, researchers of VR applications, and nonengineering readers who want to find out more about the state of the art and future developments in VR technologies and applications.

I highly recommend this book. It can be viewed as both a handbook on the subject and a reference in the field.
