In this paper, we propose a new method for collision handling between 3-D deformable (organs) and rigid (surgical tools) objects valid for nonstructured interaction scenes and, specifically, for laparoscopic surgery simulators. During the simulation step, vertices of the organ detected as collided must be accurately shifted out of the tool to elude a visual(More)
The nonlocal means (NLM) filter has become a popular approach for denoising medical images due to its excellent performance. However, its heavy computational load has been an important shortcoming preventing its use. NLM works by averaging pixels in nonlocal vicinities, weighting them depending on their similarity with the pixel of interest. This similarity(More)
VR laparoscopic simulators have demonstrated its validity in recent studies, and research should be directed towards a high training effectiveness and efficacy. In this direction, an insight into simulators' didactic design and technical development is provided, by describing the methodology followed in the building of the SINERGIA simulator. It departs(More)
In this paper we propose a novel approach to design a family of Radial Basis Functions with Compact Support applied to elastic registration of medical images. The proposed method is based on Non-Uniform Rational B-Spline theory, which introduce a number of practical properties. The proposed method allows to design almost perfect equally distributed(More)
