    CARS 2002 Computer Assisted Radiology and Surgery
    16th International Congress and Exhibition
    June 26-29, 2002
    Palais des Congrès, Paris, France

    CARS is the premier annual international meeting of experts on new
    developments in computer assisted medical tools and applications. This
    conference concentrates on advances in medical imaging, health care
    networking, surgical robotics and instrumentation, and related imaging based
    technologies. CARS now includes the electronic medical record
    (EMR) and access management, with collaboration between all healthcare
    parties, including the patient.

    Progress in specific computer assisted techniques (e.g. digital imaging,
    computer aided diagnosis, image guided surgery, MEMS, etc.) combined with
    computer assisted integration tools (e.g. PACS, EMR, middleware, Internet,
    telemedicine, etc.) is reported at CARS. Physicians describe the use of PACS
    and telemedicine systems as enabling infrastructures for improving quality
    of and access to healthcare. Tools based on CAD and CAS are introduced by
    scientists and engineers at CARS.

    To ensure that these tools benefit the patient, collaboration between
    various disciplines, specifically radiology, surgery, engineering,
    informatics and healthcare management is a critical factor. The federation
    of societies and congresses of CARS 2002 (ISCAS, CMI, CAD, CVI, and CAR)
    provides a cooperative framework for advancing the development and
    application of modern computer assisted technologies in healthcare.
