Virtual Environment for Surgical Planning and Analysis (VESPA)

 

The Virtual Environment for Surgical Planning and Analysis (VESPA) helps surgeons plan surgeries. It allows them to see their patient's data (in stereo, shaded, wireframe, transparent modes), extract quantitative data from the data (distances, angles, volumes). interact with their data (make cuts), and do simulations (soft-tissue modeling, tissue dynamics/ interaction).

    Applications:
  • craniofacial reconstructive surgery
  • breast reconstruction
  • soft-tissue reconstruction
  • congenital defects
    Technologies:
  • Surgical WorkBench
  • Virtual Tools
  • Surgical user interfaces
  • Stereo visualization
  • Mesh cutting and intelligent mesh reduction
  • Distributed VR/telemedicine/telecollaboration
  • Progressive Level-of-Detail rendering
  • Voice recognition/generation
  • Quantitative analysis
  • Finite-Element Simulation.
  • breast reconstruction
  • soft-tissue reconstruction
  • congenital defects
