    Surgical simulation can provide great benefits to medicine by reducing the cost and duration of training and making the process more intuitive and informative. However, a simulation system imposes stringent requirements on the human-machine interface. A sense of touch greatly enhances the simulation experience, since much of the skill that a medical professional possesses is in his ability to expl... View full abstract»

    Most of today's medical simulation systems are based on geometric representations of anatomical structures that take no account of their physical nature. Representing physical phenomena and, more specifically, the realistic modeling of soft tissue will not only improve current medical simulation systems but will considerably enlarge the set of applications and the credibility of medical simulation...

    The Visible Human Project data sets are designed to serve as a common reference point for the study of human anatomy, as a set of common public-domain data for testing medical imaging algorithms, and as a testbed and model for the construction of image libraries that can be accessed through networks. The data sets are being applied to a wide range of educational, diagnostic, treatment planning, vi... View full abstract»

    Modeling the deformation of human organs for surgery simulation systems has turned out to be quite a challenge. Not only is very little known about the physical properties of general human tissue but in addition, most conventional modeling techniques are not applicable because of the timing requirements of simulation systems. To produce a video-like visualization of a deforming organ, the deformat... View full abstract»

    Virtual reality is just emerging as an accepted scientific discipline for medicine. The majority of near-term applications are in the area of surgical planning, interoperative navigation, and surgical simulations. Its use in rehabilitative medicine and psychiatry has made significant progress. The immediate future holds promise for virtual endoscopy, which may replace standard endoscopic procedure...

    The practice of medicine has, for millennia, relied upon a master-apprentice system of learning, with patients providing the necessary anatomy from which one learns how to perform surgery and other procedures. The advent of high-power computing and real-time graphics representations allows medicine to advance beyond this traditional methods of teaching and to begin to educate physicians without pu...

    Applications of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) in medicine require real-time visualization and modeling of large three-dimensional data sets. Consequently, these applications require powerful computation, extensive high-bandwidth memory, and fast communication links. In the past, the manufacturers of medical imaging equipment produced their own special-purpose proprietary hardware... View full abstract»

    Telepresence systems can improve surgeons' performance in minimally invasive surgery (MIS) and microsurgery and also enable them to operate on patients remotely over great distances. In MIS, telepresence technology allows surgeons to experiment surgery as if their hands and eyes were effectively inside the patient's closed abdomen, enabling them to work with improved skill and dexterity. In micros... View full abstract»
