The second edition of the Visualization in Medicine book, retitled Visual Computing in Medicine to reflect its significant revision and broader treatment of the field, started appearing in readers’ hands by the end of 2013.

This is a significant rework of the previous 2007 edition. The book has been completely restructured, existing chapters have been significantly revised and new chapters have been written. (see below the cover design for more information about the contents)

You can download a PDF with the full table of contents. Note that this is a draft of the table of contents. The final typeset version will differ in terms of page numbering, especially due to the five online chapters, and in terms of general prettiness.

You can also view a sample of the book (table of contents and chapter one) via Google Books. (please let me know if this does NOT work)
