Deformable Models and Computer Assisted Surgery
The MODEF / CAO group emerged in 2001, integrated into the Medical Image Computing Laboratory (MedICLab) research group of the UPV. This line of work is currently directed by Dr. Mª José Rupérez Moreno and Dr. Carlos Monserrat Aranda. The group aims to simulate the behavior of human soft tissue for the creation of planning, guidance and surgical simulation systems that help surgeons to increase the precision of interventions and training in this type of complex surgeries. The lines of research are related to biomechanical modeling by calculating parameters adapted to the patient, and simulating their behavior in real time through machine learning techniques.
