    An anatomical atlas is an annotated volume of images, charts or tables that systematically illustrate an anatomical part. Atlas annotations often include structure names, descriptions, locations and functions, as well as other information specific to the atlas anatomy. Individualized digital atlases can be generated by using a computer to transform the shape of the atlas into the shape of images t... View full abstract»

    A general digital model of human anatomy is very helpful both in supporting the process of anatomical segmentation and as a reference system for simulating surgical situations or even rehearsal of interventions. This article describes the data structure and implementation of such a model. Neither superhero nor crash-test dummy, Voxel-Man is an attempt to combine in a single framework a detailed sp...

    Defines one of the principles governing the current transition from the post-industrial to the information society. The computer business is like one big Monopoly game with a global playing board. However, in place of the die and the Community Chest cards, the computer business game uses the scientific approach pioneered by Lanchester, Koopmans and Nobuo Taoka. The new Lanchester strategy is a met... View full abstract»

    The WWW system has reached a crossroads. Since its inception in 1991, it has evolved rapidly from a tool for congenial information-sharing among CERN's high-energy-particle physicists to a channel of communication for anyone with access to the Internet. Web-based information, tracked by dozens of Web crawlers and harvesters, continues to grow exponentially without much thought for guidelines, safe... View full abstract»

    One of the main factors affecting any product development schedule is rework. In the consumer product market, the risk of rework is often measured against the need to get to market quickly. This frequently happens in the software market as well; products are released with known bugs and then upgraded after user testing. Therefore, software development organizations may choose to limit the iteratio... View full abstract»

    Many standards groups and consortia are now addressing global information infrastructure (GII) standardization. Each group is working on issues within its particular GII area, and some are aggressively promoting government activities, commercial mergers, and social concerns. In many cases, essential standards already exist but are unknown to other groups that could benefit from their use View full abstract»

    Software process improvement is gaining momentum throughout the software industry. Many cities now have nonprofit SPIN (Software Process Improvement Network) groups. In a visible sign that process improvement is now a mainstream technology, SPIN's national conference in Boston last spring drew several thousand attendees. Another sign is the frequency of journal articles devoted to process improvem... View full abstract»

    Surgical resection is the cornerstone of curative therapy for primary and metastatic liver tumors. For best results, the surgeon must know the location of all hepatic tumor nodules relative to the major vessels that define the liver's surgical anatomy. Computed tomography is very sensitive for detecting liver tumors, but its planar slices do not fully address the three-dimensional nature of this s... View full abstract»

    In the past few years, the micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) industry has exceeded the $1-billion-a-year mark. Some economic forecasters estimate that the industry will surpass $14 billion by the year 2000. The reason for this tremendous growth is the enabling nature of MEMS, which give engineers and researchers the tools to build things that have been impossible or prohibitively expensive wi...

    New interactive computerized visualization technology promises to give doctors easier, quicker and less expensive ways to determine whether and to what extent patients have heart disease. This new visualization technology, combined with new image acquisition methods, may allow doctors to take the results of one noninvasive cardiac examination and produce a variety of 3D displays that can be easily...

    The registration policy for domain names on the Internet began simply enough: first come, first served. This policy worked fine until recently when the number of commercial forces-addresses ending with “.com”-skyrocketed. In just the past year, .com registrations have shot up from 18,000 to more than 82,000. As a result, disputes have mushroomed between companies with registered names ... View full abstract»

    Computer-assisted surgery (CAS) helps surgeons find their bearings during operations under difficult visual conditions. These include brain surgery and other head operations. CAS combines coordinate measurements of the operating instruments and superimposes their positions on to images of the operation area so that surgeons can follow instrument movements on a computer screen. Since 1986, the Inst... View full abstract»
