3D Needle-Tissue Interaction Simulation for Prostate Brachytherapy
This paper presents a needle-tissue interaction model that is a 3D extension of a prior work based on the finite element method. The model is also adapted to accommodate arbitrary ...

Compact Support Radial Basis Functions for Soft Tissue Deformation
We describe the use of compact support radial basis functions (CSRBFs) for simulation of soft tissue deformation. CSRBFs allow surface and volumetric deformations to be computed i...
