Minimally invasive procedures, new safe bioprosthetic materials and virtual multiplanar high-resolution imaging have turned the healthcare delivery on its head. There is a paradigm shift in the way we diagnose, image and treat the human body sufferings. Safe anesthesia and surgical techniques now offer a morphological and functional "normalcy" to human systems. As such, "normal appearance" has undergone a complete metamorphosis in its comprehension. There is a need to re-orient and re-learn the altered, but the "normal morphological anatomy" after corrective surgical procedures. In fact, it is now binding on the part of radiologists and the treating doctors to undergo an extensive lateral integration in identifying and redefining limits of "normalcy."

The time has come to publish literature on both, normal and abnormal postsurgical/postprocedural appearances. There is also a felt need to compile extensively and systematically (or body-part-wise) all the surgical photographs and multi-modality images to educate concerned stakeholders. There is bound to be a steep learning curve necessitating compartmental specialization. The monumental challenge will be to define follow-up protocols, documenting earliest signs of complications/failures and address insurance-related claims/businesses.

It is a classic example of "better technology opening new vistas and challenges to surmount!"
