Matthias Galster1; Antoine Widmer2    1 University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand2 University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland, Sierre, Switzerland


Medical planning and simulation (MPS) systems integrate resource-consuming computations (e.g., simulations of human tissue) and advanced interaction techniques (e.g., haptic devices). Developing MPS systems is challenging and a specialized, time-consuming, and expensive process. Achieving quality in these systems is essential due to the criticality of those systems for human health and life. Throughout our experience with developing research and commercial MPS systems, we found that these systems ...
