Surgical Simulation

Surgical simulation presents a virtual environment where surgeons can train surgical procedures. Our research has focused on the development of faster calculation of deformation and visualization. We seek to simulate very complex morphology in real-time.

The clinical application for the project is congenital cardiac diseases in cooperate with Ole Kromann Hansen, MD and Vibeke Hjortdal, MD from the Department of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery, Aarhus University Hospital. For the data aquisition we work with Gerhald Greil, MD from University of Tübingen.
