Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


As the power of personal computing increases, there is a greater demand for high fidelity virtual environments for medical training simulators. However, it is still a challenge to provide realistic soft tissue deformation especially when haptic feedback is also required. This paper presents a new approach to soft tissue deformation using a novel Charged Particle method to efficiently model both the structure and haptic properties of anatomy in real time.
