Method and System for Facilitating Surgery
In a method for facilitating surgery, a signal or signals are transmitted from one or more transmitters coupled to a surgical probe, and the signal or signals are received at a plurality of receivers. An estimate of a position of a portion of the surgical probe is determined based on the signal or signals received by the plurality of receivers. An indication of the estimate of the position is displayed on a display unit, wherein the display unit displays a representation of an anatomy of a patient, and wherein the indication of the estimate of the position is integrated with the representation of the anatomy of the patient.
