5.0 out of 5 stars Best compilation of work in medical visualization 9 April 2014
By K. Mehta - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If you work in medical visualization (rendering, segmentation or product design) then this is the must book to have on your desk. I had previous edition too. What I like about this book is clear compilation of most up-to date techniques in one place. There are lot of references. I am thankful to Bernhard for putting together such work. Each chapter or sub-section is like STAR (State of the Art) report on that topic, so you can understand a lot in short period and avoid reading lots of paper!

However, keep in mind that this book is not step-to-step guide about how to implement different techniques. All techniques are discussed at bit high level and for some you may want to read other book or paper for details.
