A training system for simulating temporal bone surgery is presented. The system is based on patient-specific volumetric object models derived from 3D CT andMR imaging data. Real-time feedback is provided to the trainees via real-time volume rendering and haptic feedback. The performance constraints dictated by the human perceptual system are met by exploiting parallelism via a decoupled simulation approach on a multi-processor PC platform. In this paper, system components are detailed and the current state of the integrated system is presented.
