An Information Model Based Framework for Virtual Micro Surgery


In this paper we discuss the creation of a virtual reality environment for micro surgery. An information model was developed and used as the basis to understand the complex domain of micro surgery. An information model using a modeling language is used to propel the various simulation activities in the virtual environment. An enterprise level surgical manager, surgical planner and other components work together to enable the functioning of the virtual environment for micro surgery. The creation of a virtual surgical environment will enable surgical residents to learn the appropriate way of managing various conditions with safety considerations to the residents (students) and patients.
