In March 2017, Dr. Marc Tewfik performed a delicate operation to remove cancerous tissue from a patient's sinus cavity, something that he has done many times before at the McGill University Health Center (MUHC) in Montr?al, Canada. But this time, things were a bit different. Before performing such a minimally invasive surgery using a thin laparoscopic device inserted through the nose, the exact surgical plan was worked out in meticulous detail. Tewfik (Figure 1) used magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans to plot a pathway for the surgical tools to reach the target tissue without endangering arteries or nerves in an area just fractions of an inch from the optic nerve and from the brain itself.

Information systems, usually computer-assisted, that enable providers to initiate medical procedures, prescribe medications, etc. These systems support medical decision-making and error-reduction during patient care.
Computer-based systems for input, storage, display, retrieval, and printing of information contained in a patient's medical record.
Automated systems applied to the patient care process including diagnosis, therapy, and systems of communicating medical data within the health care setting.
Systems that provide all or most of the items necessary for maintaining life and health. Provisions are made for the supplying of oxygen, food, water, temperature and pressure control, disposition of carbon dioxide and body waste. The milieu may be a spacecraft, a submarine, or the surface of the moon. In medical care, usually under hospital conditions, LIFE SUPPORT CARE is available. (From Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary)
A view of the world and the individual's environment as comprehensible, manageable, and meaningful, claiming that the way people view their life has a positive influence on their health.
