Modelling of the prostate

Discrete modelling of the prostate and the surrounding organs

Despite the important number of algorithms proposed for interactively modelling deformable objects such as soft human tissues, very few methods have attempted to simulate complex anatomical configurations. Our approach integrates the interactions between the prostate and the surrounding organs (especially the bladder). The proposed discrete model is compared to finite element method in order to quantify its performance and physical realism.
