An integral equation based multiresolution modeling scheme for multimodal medical simulations.
Presented at: 11th International Symposium on Haptic Interfaces for Virtual Environment and Teleoperator Systems, LOS ANGELES, CA.
Novel modeling paradigms are necessary to cope with the requirement of physically based real time simulation of laparoscopic surgical procedures using force feedback.The requirement of real time force feedback precludes the use of a very high high-resolution model over the entire domain. In this paper we propose a method to address this issue by introducing a multiresolution modeling technique, where a reasonably coarse global model is locally enhanced using mesh subdivision and smoothening. The global model is based on a discretization of the boundary integral representation of the problem. The use of precomputation and structural reanalysis techniques result in a very rapid computation procedure. The local refinements are provided in the vicinity of the tool-tissue interaction area by adaptive subdivision of the boundary element mesh. This technique results in interactive graphical as well as haptic rendering rates for reasonably complex models.
