Abstract

During the last few years several surgical training simulators have been proposed. One of the main advantages of these simulators is the ability to provide riskless training on a wide range of different cases in a compressed period of time. Therefore the generation of variable surgical scenes is a crucial component of a simulator. This paper compares three different approaches for the generation of pathologies specifically suited for surgical training simulators. The generated models can be embedded in the healthy organ model to challenge the trainee with a new case in every training.
