A modular simulation framework for colonoscopy using a new haptic device

We have developed a multi-threaded framework for colonoscopy simulation utilising OpenGL with an interface to a real-time prototype colonoscopy haptic device. A modular framework has enabled us to support multiple haptic devices and efficiently integrate new research into physically based modelling of the colonoscope, colon and surrounding organs. The framework supports GPU accelerated algorithms as runtime modules, allowing the real-time calculations required for haptic feedback.
