In this research, the proposed research methodology comprising of the following elements: (a) Mass Spring Model (MSM)—to model human liver as a collection of mass points linked by a network of springs, (b) Knowledge-based Fuzzy MSM Parameters Controller (FMPC)—to obtain the corresponding stiffness coefficients regarding different liver illnesses, (c) Utilization of Computer Unified Architecture (CUDA)—to utilize as a platform or framework for GPU and CPU distribution of computational works.
