Abstract

In this work, possibility of simulating biological organs in realtime using the Boundary Element Method (BEM) is investigated, with specific reference to the speed and the accuracy offered by BEM. First, a Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) is used to speed up the BEM computations to achieve the realtime performance. Next, instead of the GPU, a computer cluster is used. A pig liver is the biological organ considered. Results indicate that BEM is an interesting choice for the simulation of biological organs. Although the use of BEM for the simulation of biological organs is not new, the results presented in the present study are not found elsewhere in the literature.
