It is foreseen that the World Wide Web (WWW) will become the most important communication medium of any future information society. The organization of information is therefore critical especially concerning healthcare. The introduction of a new (global) standard called `Virtual Medical Worlds' provides the potential to organize existing medical information and provide the foundations for its integration into future forms of medical information systems. Virtual Medical Worlds, based on 3D reconstructed medical models, utilizes the WWW as a navigational medium to remotely access multi-media medical information systems. The visualization and manipulation of hyper-graphical 3D `body/organ' templates and patient-specific 3D/4D/and VR models is an attempt to define an information infrastructure in an emerging WWW-based telemedical information society.
