Abstract

This paper presents the ASVC (Acquisition, Simulation, Visualization and Controller) framework for integrating heterogeneous virtual surgery modules. The framework extends the well-known MVC (Model-View-Controller) system architecture to make virtual surgery systems flexible and efficient. The framework can be used to construct stand-alone or server-client based virtual surgery systems. The former can be used for pre-surgery practice and planning, and the latter is suitable for surgical e-training. A stand-alone version has been implemented at the University of Akron and a server-client based system is under construction.
