École:A.B. Lucas S.S.
Sommaire:This project seeks to train surgeons for minimally invasive heart valve replacement surgery in a virtual reality environment. This is a very difficult technique that requires extensive image guidance. The project's focus is to create a simulation that provides the surgeon with visual and force (haptics) feedback to help them train for positioning the heart valve during surgery.
