An Optimized Model for the Local Compression Deformation of Soft Tissue

2020 KSII Transactions on Internet and Information Systems  
Due to the long training time and high training cost of traditional surgical training methods, the emerging virtual surgical training method has gradually replaced it as the mainstream. However, the virtual surgical system suffers from poor authenticity and high computational cost problems. For overcoming the deficiency of these problems, we propose an optimized model for the local compression deformation of soft tissue. This model uses a simulated annealing algorithm to optimize the parameters

Meanwhile, although the soft tissue deformation is divided into local deformation region and non-deformation region, our proposed model only needs to calculate and update the deformation region, which can improve the simulation real-time performance. Besides, we define a compensation strategy for the "superelastic" effect which often occurs with the mass-spring model. To verify the validity of the model, we carry out a compression simulation experiment of abdomen and human foot and compare it with other models. The experimental results indicate the proposed model is realistic and effective in soft tissue compression simulation, and it outperforms other models in accuracy and real-time performance.
