SOFA is an open-source software aiming at real-time simulations. This project is currently developed by 3 Inria teams: Shacra, Evasion and Asclepios but the software also benefited from the help of the CIMIT Sim Group, ETH Zurich and CSIRO.
In our work, SOFA is used for research purposes in order to develop medical simulation. To carry out our training system, we intend to simulate the catheter navigation, the cardiac electrophysiology as well as the thermo-ablation. Screenshots from these simulations are shown below.
