Abstract
This paper describes different methods tested to haptically explore voxel-based data acquired through medical scanners. The goal of this project is a multi-modal virtual reality surgical simulator. This simulator will allow surgeons and surgical residents to practice and rehearse surgical procedures using patient-specific data. Several methods for calculating the displayed force were investigated and are presented. Additional medical dataset operations, graphical interfaces, and implementation issues are also presented.
