A real-time approach to modeling soft tissue deformation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We are working toward developing a physically accurate real-time abdominal palpation simulator. To achieve this, two major goals must be met. The first is to develop a model that accurately simulates the physical characteristics of the tissues in the human abdomen. The model must not only be physically accurate, it must run in real-time for the simulation to be usable. The second major goal is to design a framework within which to parameterize physical properties of different tissues as well as a methodology to extract those parameters non-invasively.
