The Image-Guided Surgery Toolkit (IGSTK) provides tracker interfaces for various tracking devices. The tracker component of IGSTK was extended with three new tracking interfaces: CamBar B2, EasyTrack 500, and Active Polaris. Using an IGSTK application we evaluated the precision of each of the tracking systems. Based on our evaluation we conclude that all tracking systems are sufficiently accurate for ENT procedures.
