Abstract

© Springer International Publishing AG, part of Springer Nature 2018. In surgery, where mistakes have the potential for dire consequences, proper training plays a crucial role. Surgical training has traditionally relied upon experienced surgeons mentoring trainees through cadaveric dissection and operating theatre practice. However, with the growing demand for more surgeons and more efficient training programs, it has become necessary to employ supplementary forms of training such as virtual reality simulation. However, the use of such simulations as autonomous training platforms is limited by the extent to which they can provide automated performance feedback. Recent work has focused on ove..
