This paper presents a new approach to the simulation of soft tissues deformation suitable for real time computation, particularly intriguing for medical applications. The approach implements a quasi-static solution for elastic global deformations of objects filled with fluid and fibers, which can be a good approximation for biological tissues. It is based(More)
The aim of this paper is to provide a general discussion, algorithm, and actual working programs of the deformation method for fast simulation of biological tissue formed by fibers and fluid. In order to demonstrate the benefit of the clinical applications software, we successfully used our computational program to deform a 3D breast image acquired from(More)
Bifunctional optical magnetic materials with a high europium content have been prepared. Chelating groups were introduced on the Fe3O4 surface with organosilanes containing ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) derivatives, which were previously prepared via a reaction between EDTA-dianhydride and aminoalkoxysilane agents: 3-(trimethoxysilyl)propylamine(More)
