  journal={IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering},
For realistic surgical simulation in a virtual environment, in vivo material properties of biological tissues are required for simulating the deformations and the reaction forces from the tool-tissue interactions. In this paper, the in vivo static and dynamic mechanical behavior of the liver and lower esophagus of pigs were presented both in linear and nonlinear regions under compressive and shear indentations. A robotic device was programmed to function as a mechanical stimulator with a 2-mm… CONTINUE READING
