Thyroid Biopsy Simulation

Webpage created on September 16, 2022

We are implementing a thyroid biopsy simulator by modifying an existing central venous access (CVA) simulator previously developed in our lab. We are registering a virtual 3D thyroid and surrounding structures to the neck area of the CVA simulator.  We re-use the tracked needle and tracked ultrasound probe of the CVA simulator for the thyroid biopsy simulator.
