This article describes trends in application of various imaging technology in surgical planning, navigation, and computer aided surgery. Imaging information is essential factor for simulation in medicine. It includes three dimensional (3D) image reconstruction, neuro-surgical navigation, creating substantial model based on 3D imaging data and etc. These developments depend mostly on 3D imaging technique, which is much contributed by recent computer technology. 3D imaging can offer new intuitive information to physician and surgeon, and this method is suitable for mechanical control. By utilizing simulated results, we can obtain more precise surgical orientation, estimation, and operation. For more advancement, automatic and high speed recognition of medical imaging is being developed.
