In the application part, eight clinical sec- tions are included. Unlike other publication, the techniques and plication in the field of computer integrated surgery. In part one, the essential technological components are covered. The most im- applications in this book are quite up-to-date. Some exciting ap- plications, .e.g. use of robotic techniques for precise execution of portant techniques are discussed, and the main computer systems hip replacement, are very encouraging. There are some very use- and software are introduced.

The technique of shape analysis is more chapters) are very informative and link the materials from not mentioned in this book, this is important in the simulation of the various authors into a meaningful picture.
