Paper Abstract

In this contribution a postprocessing method is introduced that enables dynamic accuracy examinations of position and angle measurements of two not interfering localizing systems describing the same subspace of Euclidian R3. Furthermore, the method can be used for realization of a hybrid localizing system given a common temporal synchronization of the measurements. Therewith, this article provides a flexible method for examining the influence of the operating room on magnetic tracking by dynamic comparison with reference measurements of an optical localizing system.
