We describe a framework for training-oriented simulation of temporal bone surgery. Bone dissection is simulated visually and haptically, using a hybrid data representation that allows smooth surfaces to be maintained for graphic rendering while volumetric data is used for haptic feedback. Novel sources of feedback are incorporated into the simulation… CONTINUE READING
