A new diamond-based variable spring-mass model has been proposed in this study. It can realize the deformation simulation for different organs by changing the length of the springs, spring coefficient and initial angle. The virtual spring joined in the model is used to provide constraint and to avoid hyperelastic phenomenon when excessive force appears. It(More)
Mass point-spring model is one of the commonly used models in virtual surgery. However, its model parameters have no clear physical meaning, and it is hard to set the parameter conveniently. We, therefore, proposed a method based on genetic algorithm to determine the mass-spring model parameters. Computer-aided tomography (CAT) data were used to determine(More)
