Geometric Nonlinearity: Is it Important for Real-time FEM Surgical Simulation?

Abstract

1. Background/Problem In real-time surgery simulation and planning, the Finite Element Method (FEM) is often used to simulate small and large deformation of human tissue for applications such as laparoscopy training [4], needle insertion planning [1], and image registration [2]. In using FEM, assumptions must be made about material properties and the scale… (More)
