In the area of medical education, there is a strong need for palpation training to address the specific need of detecting subsurface tumors. A virtual reality training simulation was created to address this need. Utilizing the Rutgers Master II force feedback system, the simulation allows the user to perform a patient examination and palpate (touch) the patient's virtual liver to search for hard regions beneath the surface. When the user's fingertips pass over a "tumor", experimentally… CONTINUE READING
