Real-Time Haptic and Visual Simulation of Bone Dissection
TLDR
A physically motivated model is used to describe the burr-bone interaction, which includes haptic forces evaluation, the bone erosion process, and the resulting debris. Expand
Adaptive techniques for real-time haptic and visual simulation of bone dissection
TLDR
This paper discusses adaptive techniques for providing real-time haptic and visual feedback during a virtual bone dissection simulation and harnesses the difference in complexity and frequency requirements of the visual and haptic simulations. Expand
Catheter insertion simulation with co-registered direct volume rendering and haptic feedback.
TLDR
An experimental catheter insertion simulation system supporting head-tracked stereoscopic viewing of volumetric anatomic reconstructions registered with direct haptic 3D interaction, and providing perception of the effort of penetration and deviation inside the traversed tissues. Expand
A multiprocessor decoupled system for the simulation of temporal bone surgery
Abstract.A training system for simulating temporal bone surgery is presented. The system is based on patient-specific volumetric object models derived from 3D CT and MR imaging data. Real-timeExpand
A haptic model of a bone-cutting burr.
TLDR
A strategy for collecting experimental data and validating a bone-burr haptic contact model developed in a virtual surgical training system for middle ear surgery and based on the analysis of data acquired during virtual and real burring sessions is described. Expand
Real-time Cataract Surgery Simulation for Training
TLDR
A novel virtual reality simulation system for cataract surgery training, involving the capsulorhexis and phacoemulsification tasks, and provides realistic physically-based visual simulations of tools interactions. Expand
Mastoidectomy simulation with combined visual and haptic feedback.
TLDR
The paper summarizes the detailed task analysis performed in order to define the system requirements, introduces the architecture of the prototype simulator, and discusses the initial feedback received from selected end users. Expand
Real-time haptic and visual simulation of bone dissection
TLDR
A physically motivated model is used to describe the burr-bone interaction, which includes haptic force evaluation, the bone erosion process and the resulting debris, and is efficient enough to provide real-time feedback on a low-end multiprocessing PC platform. Expand
ViVa: the virtual vascular project
The aim of the virtual vascular project (ViVa) is to develop tools for the modern hemodynamicist and cardiovascular surgeon to study and interpret the constantly increasing amount of informationExpand
Catheter insertion simulation with combined visual and haptic feedback
TLDR
An experimental catheter insertion system supporting head-tracked stereoscopic viewing of volumetric reconstruction registered with direct haptic 3D interaction is developed. Expand
