Medical Augmented Reality is a constantly growing research field, pushing the boundaries of medical data and imaging visualization, increasing the quality and safety of surgical procedures, and is able to provide surgical guidance and additional information to medical professionals in the most intuitive way. Augmented Reality (AR) education systems train the surgeons of tomorrow to acquire the critical skills, support the surgical staff in clinical routine, and AR rehabilitation concepts help patients to recover faster after interventions.
To teach a new generation of clinicians, scientists, engineers, and industry professionals, we initiated the Medical Augmented Reality Summer School (MARSS) program which has already been successfully conducted as an on-site event in 2019, and as a fully virtual event in 2021. The program consists of keynotes, lectures, and workshops, as well as a competition, in which novel ideas and concepts are fostered and developed into working prototypes and solutions in international and interdisciplinary teams.
This MDPI Journal of Imaging Special Issue showcases selected research projects initiated and conducted within the competition of the MARSS2021 program, as well as complementary scientific articles about Medical Augmented Reality research from selected main speakers of MARSS2021.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Imaging is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
