Abstract

Medical training centers often provide various simulations for students and professionals. Their goal is not only to make trainees practice specific scenarios but also to help them effectively transfer the acquired skills to the real world. Having in mind that virtual environments have already been acknowledged for their potential to improve the medical training process, we propose an approach for rapid generation of animated medical scenarios, which can be used as an additional training tool that fits into the time frame of a semester training program.
