A virtual reality simulator to train surgeons for skull-base procedures

People with diseases or conditions that affect the base of the skull, such as otologic abnormalities, cancerous tumors and birth defects, might need to undergo skull base surgery at some point in their life. To successfully conduct these challenging procedures, surgeons must skillfully operate on and within a person's skull, accessing specific regions using drills.
