Paper Abstract

The research on how to determine the 3D position of endoscope by using magnetic field has been conducted for solving the positioning problem of endoscope inside the patient's body by using harmless magnetic field. We develop a new approach to determine the position of endoscope inside the body using magnetic field, and the pose of endoscope tip by attached a 3D magnetic sensor to endoscope.
