Abstract

This paper presents an educational method for minimally invasive surgery (MIS) and an integrated system to train a priori knowledge and to exercise manual dexterity. The approach is generally suitable for MIS interventions but has been developed specifically for knee arthroscopy. Based on a classification of the knowledge required for performing arthroscopy procedures, the system provides multimedia modules to train and assess anatomical and procedural knowledge and a virtual reality-based simulator for training perceptual-motor skills. The system is currently being experimented for metrics definition and extended incorporating networked database management.
