Simulation: Transactions of the Society for Modeling and Simulation International
We would like to welcome you to this Special Issue on Medical Simulation, the first of its kind not only for SIMULATION: Transactions of The Society for Modeling and Simulation International, but for any technical journal. Our respective backgrounds are an indication of the technical and clinical breadth of medical simulation, as we approach the subject as primarily medical image analysis and biomechanics experts respectively, each with a variety of clinical interests spanning virtual reality (VR)–based neuro-, orthopedic and ear-nose-and-throat surgery. Moreover, we believe that the breadth of the papers that comprise this issue reflects an even broader perspective. After all, medical simulation can be seen as encompassing mannequin-based training, as well as nonsurgical areas such as pharmacological and physiological modeling, the latter of which is increasingly multi-scale and integrative.
