Paper Abstract

The main simulators of digestive surgery have been developed for solid organs such as the liver and spleen. Studies relating to soft tissues like the pelvic organs are rare. This is related to the kind of simulations in which the characterization of the physical parameters of the pelvic may present a complex task . In this paper, we consider two physical models, the rst one is elaborated using the mass-spring method and the second using the nite element method. Simulation results are presented and discussed on the basis of a comparison with a dynamic MRI data.
