This article describes the simulation of real-time catheter navigation in our interactive interventional cardiology simulation system (ICard). ICard is designed to enable medical students or physicians to familiarize themselves with the techniques of interventional catheterization procedures. The ICard software provides three-dimensional (3-D) views of the(More)
This paper describes a computerized simulation system for less invasive vascular interventions using virtual-reality (VR)-based technology. A virtual human patient is constructed on top of the visible human data (VHD) incorporating in various vascular disease cases. Specially, the human vascular network is modeled for the use of catheterization simulation.(More)
In this paper, we describe a parametric eyeball modeling system for real-time simulation of eye surgery. A knowledge-based approach is used to parametrically model the ophthalmologic structures. Together with the parametric eye modeling and the integration of patient-specific disease images, the ophthalmologic knowledge databases of eye diseases, eye(More)
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) occurs more frequently in men than in women. It is commonly agreed that estrogen plays important roles in suppressing HCC development, however, the underlying mechanism remains largely unknown. Since estrogen is mainly metabolized in liver and its metabolites affect cell proliferation, we sought to investigate if the(More)
