An interactive high-fidelity haptic needle simulator with GPU acceleration

Abstract

Needle operation is one of the fundamental operations in many surgeries such as acupuncture, liver biopsy and anesthesia. During such procedure, the haptic perception is especially important for surgeons to manipulate the needles. In this paper, a simulator with realistic visual and haptic interaction for the needle insertion operation is presented. A fast… (More)
