Basic Usage of VES2 should be a lot easier, because there are now some basic tutorials on how to navigate the surgical data and use the different features. We are still very much in the process of developing, and this Beta version is not by any means finished. However, it is our hope that the software can be a platform for a lot of experiments, anatomy studies and enhanced surgical training in the future.
All the best from the VES team
