It is foreseen that the World Wide Web (WWW) will become the most important communication medium of any future information society. The organisation of information is therefore critical, especially concerning health care. The introduction of a new (global) standard called “Virtual Medical Worlds” provides the potential to organise existing medical information and provide the foundations for its integration into future forms of medical information systems. Virtual Medical Worlds, based on 3D reconstructed medical models, utilises the WWW as a navigational medium to remotely access multimedia medical information systems. The visualisation and manipulation of hyper-graphical 3D “body/organ” templates and patient-specific 3D, 4D and virtual reality models is an attempt to define an information infrastructure in an emerging WWW-based telemedical information society
