<h1><strong>Anser EMT</strong></h1> <h1>An open-source electromagnetic tracking platform</h1> <h2><strong>Purpose</strong></h2> <p>Electromagnetic tracking is the gold-standard for instrument tracking and navigation in the clinical setting without visual line-of-sight. While clinical platforms exist for interventional bronchoscopy and neurosurgical navigation, the limited flexibility and high costs of electromagnetic tracking (EMT) systems for research investigations mitigate against a better understanding of the technology's characterisation and limitations.</p> <p>The aim of the Anser project is to provide an open-source implementation for electromagnetic tracking with particular application to image-guided interventions. The system is compatible with commercially available EMT sensors as well as the Open Network Interface for Image-Guided Therapy (OpenIGTLink) for easy communication with visualisation toolkits such as MITK and 3D Slicer.</p> <p>@<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nXWdEZ1eUlA" rel="nofollow">youtube</a></p>
