Implantable sensing, whether used for transient or long-term monitoring of in vivo physiological, bio-electrical, bio-chemical and metabolic changes, is a rapidly advancing field of research and development. Underpinned by increasingly small, smart and energy efficient designs, they become an integral part of surgical prostheses or implants for both acute and chronic conditions, supporting optimised, context aware sensing, feedback, or... more...

This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-conference proceedings of the Third International Workshop on Computer Assisted and Robotic Endoscopy, CARE 2016, held in conjunction with MICCAI 2016, in Athens, Greece, in October 2016. The 11 revised full papers were carefully selected out of 13 initial submissions. The papers are organized on topical secttion such as computer vision, graphics, robotics, medical imaging,... more...

Rapid technical advances in medical imaging, including its growing application to drug/gene therapy and invasive/interventional procedures, have attracted significant interest in close integration of research in life sciences, medicine, physical sciences and engineering. This is motivated by the clinical and basic science research requi- ment of obtaining more detailed physiological and pathological information about the body for establishing localized... more...

The last decade has witnessed a rapid surge of interest in new sensing and monitoring devices for wellbeing and healthcare. One key development in this area is wireless, wearable and implantable in vivo monitoring and intervention. A myriad of platforms are now available from both academic institutions and commercial organisations. They permit the management of patients with both acute and chronic symptoms, including diabetes,... more...

This book addresses the issues of the rapidly changing field of wireless wearable and implantable sensors. It also discusses the latest technological developments and clinical applications of body-sensor networks (BSN). BSN is a new area of research and the last decade has seen a rapid surge of interest. The book also provides a review of current wireless sensor development platforms and a guide to developing your own BSN applications.
