As a part of an ongoing effort to develop computerized training tools for cryosurgery—the destruction of undesired tissues by freezing—the current study focuses on developing an efficient framework of applying a commercially available finite-element (FE) code to meet simulation runtime applicable to clinical training. Computerized training is focused on a minimally invasive procedure with prostate cryosurgery as a development model.
