Abstract

"A virtual bone surgery system is developed to provide the potential of a realistic, safe, and controllable environment for surgical education. It can be used for training in orthopedic surgery, as well as for planning and rehearsal of bone surgery procedures...Using the developed system, the user can perform virtual bone surgery by simultaneously "seeing" bone material removal through a graphic display device, "feeling" the force via a haptic deice, and "hearing" the sound of tool-bone interaction"--Abstract, page iii.
