The ?fth international Conference in Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention (MICCAI 2002) was held in Tokyo from September 25th to 28th, 2002. This was the ?rst time that the conference was held in Asia since its foundation in 1998. The objective of the conference is to o?er clinicians and scientists the opportunity to collaboratively create and explore the new medical ?eld. Speci?cally, MICCAI o?ers a forum for the discussion of the state ofartincomputer-assistedinterventions,medicalrobotics,andimageprocessing among experts from multi-disciplinary professions, including but not limited to clinical doctors, computer scientists, and mechanical and biomedical engineers. The expectations of society are very high; the advancement of medicine will depend on computer and device technology in coming decades, as they did in the last decades. We received 321 manuscripts, of which 41 were chosen for oral presentation and 143 for poster presentation. Each paper has been included in these proce- ings in eight-page full paper format, without any di?erentiation between oral and poster papers. Adherence to this full paper format, along with the increased number of manuscripts, surpassing all our expectations, has led us to issue two proceedings volumes for the ?rst time in MICCAI's history. Keeping to a single volume by assigning fewer pages to each paper was certainly an option for us considering our budget constraints. However, we decided to increase the volume to o?er authors maximum opportunity to argue the state of art in their work and to initiate constructive discussions among the MICCAI audience.
