A scalable, internet aware “intermediate representation” has been developed for remote interactive simulation of large deformable models. Further a networked computational environment is presented in which commodity computers tele-connect to remote high end servers using real-time protocol to utilize their processing power to enable highly realistic and detailed simulation of surgical scenarios. This proposed intermediate representation (“hive” (set) of computational nodes associated with surgical tool tip) can be tuned to the computational capacity of the client computer and is also scalable to the quality of the available network resources (bandwidth, delay, delay jitter) for the connection between client and server.
