Given the geometric complexity of anatomical structures, realistic real-time deformation of graphical reconstructions is prohibitively computationally intensive. Instead, real-time deformation of virtual anatomy is roughly approximated through simpler methodologies. Since the graphical interpolations and simple spring models commonly used in these simulations are not based on the biomechanical properties of tissue structures, these "quick and dirty" methods typically do not accurately represent… CONTINUE READING
