The simulation of deformations on volumetric representations of
heterogeneous structures has been little addressed in the litterature.
It is however an important question with a wide range of applications,
specially in fields such as Computer Assisted Medical Diagnosis and
Care applications where the deformation of anatomical structures as a
consequence of a pathology or of a trauma often need to be simulated.
In this paper, the deformation of heterogeneous volume data sets is
analyzed. A general method is proposed, enabling the simultaneous
deformation of both the interior and the shape of various imbricated
structures. The method supports different deformation models
according to the particular hypothesis of each structure elastic
behavior. Along with a discussion of the proposed strategy some
simulation examples are presented.
