Paper Abstract

In this paper we present an extendable framework fo interactive biomechanical simulation and surgical planning. Three dimensional reconstructions of patient specific data are visualized and the elastic properties of individual anatomical structures are modeled. To avoid interpenetration of the virtual objects fast collision detection has been implemented. The kinematics are controlled by a special haptic interface which provides force feedback to the user. The ongoing work will lead to an entire system for physical-based biomechanical simulation and pre-operative visualization of surgical outcomes.
