Meichun Lin was doing a project belonged to Interreg - 2 Seas Mers Zee├źn on Cooperate Brachytherapy(CoBra), it is a 4 years project which gathers the experts from the countries between English Channel and southern North Sea aiming on finding an advance method for curing prostate cancer. (see more details on The project is divided by several fields which are - MR compatible robot design, radiation dose measurement, steerable needle design, mimic soft-tissue (phantom) design and virtual reality real-time training tool development etc. Meichun was working on developing virtual reality real-time training tool with Defrost team. The aim is to have a interactive platform for human and the robot. By using SOFA framework to simulate the soft tissue's deformation and the interaction with needle insertion under the real-time, also with the Image modelling of MRI and soft-tissue modelling and so on and so forth.
