Collaboration on the storage, processing and visualisation of medical data via the Internet is a considerable challenge and one that is growing in importance due to the escalating interest in the Virtual Physiological Human. Investigations into possible approaches for distributed, realtime visualisation are important in this context. This paper presents a Web Services approach to distributed visualisation that has been developed within the LHDL project. The processing and visualisation Web Services that have been created are based on existing MAF applications; this has formed a useful testbed for transforming legacy software into Web Services. On the client side, a Rich Internet Application concept was adopted, while a web-based, user friendly Flex client has been implemented.
