The medical field, and surgeons in particular, are turning to engineers to develop systems that help them learn their craft better. Mannequin-based systems, animal labs and surgery on cadavers each have drawbacks that could be addressed through realistic computer-based surgical simulation systems. To generate a simulation that includes both tactile/haptic and visual feedback, one must know what the material properties of tissue are, so that a finite element or other model can generate the… Expand

A robotic indenter for minimally invasive measurement and characterization of soft tissue response
TLDR
An inverse finite element solution was developed using ANSYS finite element package to estimate the optimum values of viscoelastic and nonlinear hyperelastic material properties of pig liver through iterations and the initial estimates of the material properties for the iterations were extracted from the experimental data for faster convergence of the solutions.
