A New Approach to Cutting into Finite Element Models

Abstract

Virtual reality based surgical simulators offer a very elegant approach to enhancing traditional training in endoscopic surgery. In this context a realistic soft tissue model is of central importance. The most accurate procedures for modeling elastic deformations of tissue use the Finite Element Method to solve the governing mechanical equations… (More)
