    Bone dissection is an important component of many surgical procedures. We have developed a haptc and visual simulator for this surgical procedure, directly operating on a voxel discretization of patient-specific 3D CT and MR imaging data. In this video, we demonstrate a visual comparison of real and virtual surgical procedures on the temporal bone. These results were obtained within the framework of the European Union IERAPSI project (EU-IST-1999-12175).
