A visual representation of the interior of a body is important for clinical analysis and medical intervention. The technique, process and art of creating this visual representation are called medical imaging. The images produced from medical imaging need to be analyses by using Finite Element Method (FEM) especially for intraoperative registration and biomechanical modeling of the tissues. This medical model ranges from the smallest vascular to bones and the complex brain. In order to use FEM, the images need to go through surface meshing generator. Although numerous mesh generation methods have been described to date, there is a few which can deal with medical data input. In this paper, a briefing review of surface meshing that can deal in medical images is presented especially in biomedical computing and visualization. Some automatic mesh generators software used in medical imaging is also discussed such as ScanIP, MIMICS, TETGEN, NetGen, BioMesh3D,CUBITMesh and Gmsh.
