Abstract

Medical technology has advanced with the introduction of robot technology, making previous medical treatments that were very difficult far more possible. However, operation of a surgical robot demands substantial training and continual practice on the part of the surgeon because it requires difficult techniques that are different from those of traditional surgical procedures. We focused on a simulation technology based on the physical characteristics of organs. In this research, we proposed the development of surgical simulation, based on a physical model, for intra-operative navigation by a surgeon. In this paper, we describe the design of our system, in particular our organ deformation calculator. The proposed simulation system consists of an organ deformation calculator and virtual slave manipulators. We obtained adequate experimental results of a target node at a nearby point of interaction, because this point ensures better accuracy for our simulation model. The next research step would be to focus on a surgical environment in which internal organ models would be integrated into a slave simulation system.
