The Interactive Module for Cavity Navigation (IMCA) was created in order to enhance the Web Environment for Surgical Skills Training in Otolaryngology (WESST – OT); later, it was found that it could be used as an independent module which allowed the practice of path navigation in any medical cavity, and its potential use with patients was evidenced. This paper describes the making of IMCA and the potential use of genetic algorithms in path generation.
