Even though soft tissue deformation is one of the essential components ofa real time surgical simulation, very little is known about the physical properties of general human tissues. Soft tissue deformations in computer graphics and surgical simulations are commonly modelled with Finite Element method (FEM) and Mass-spring Method (MSM) because they take the physics of deformation into consideration. Even though the FEM produces more physically realistic deformations, it is computationally costly and more vulnerable to surgical procedures. However, MSM is low computational complexity and simple implementation. These f actors make the latter method highly attractive for virtual reality based surgical simulators. This paper discusses several methodologies for simulating soft-tissues in the reference frame of mass-spring models. In particular, the paper builds on the recent work on mass-spring model (MSM) and mass-tensor model (MTM).
