Abstract: The existing web-based medical training systems and surgical simulators can provide affordable and accessible medical training curriculum, but they seldom offer the trainee realistic and affordable haptic feedback. Therefore, they cannot offer the trainee a suitable practicing environment. In this paper, a haptic solution for interventional radiology (IR) procedures is proposed. System architecture of a web-based training system for IR procedures is briefly presented first. Then, the mechanical structure, the working principle and the application of a haptic device are discussed in detail. The haptic device works as an interface between the training environment and the trainees and is placed at the end user side. With the system, the user can be trained on the interventional radiology procedures - navigating catheters, inflating balloons, deploying coils and placing stents on the web and get surgical haptic feedback in real time.
