Surgical training

Virtual training helps medical students to get familiar with surgical procedures before manipulation of real patients. The development of simulation used for medical training usually requires important computational power, since realistic behaviors are key to deliver a high-fidelity experience to the trainee. Further, the quality of interaction with the simulator (usually via visual and haptic rendering) is also of paramount importance. All these constraints make the development of training systems time-consuming, thus limiting the deployment of virtual simulators in standard medical curriculum.
