Abstract

Recent advances in Image-Guided Surgery allows physicians to incorporate up-to-date, high quality patient data in the surgical decision making, and sometimes to directly perform operations based on pre- or intra-operatively acquired patient images. Electromagnetic tracking is the fastest growing area within, where the position and orientation of tiny sensors can be determined with sub-millimeter accuracy in the field created by a generator. One of the major barriers to the wider spread of electromagnetic tracking solutions is their susceptibility to ferromagnetic materials and external electromagnetic sources. The research community has long been engaged with the topic to find engineering solutions to increase measurement reliability and accuracy. This article gives an overview of related experiments, and presents our recommendation towards a robust method to collect representative data about electromagnetic trackers.
