Paper Abstract

For navigating inside the patient's body, the physician needs to know exactly the 3D position of endoscope probe. We develop a new approach to determine the 3D position of endoscope inside the body using harmless magnetic field, and the pose of endoscope tip by attached a 3D magnetic sensor to endoscope. The experience of this research can be conducted for solving the positioning problem of endoscope inside the patient's body.
