Abstract
Computer aided surgery is by sure a set of technologies that provide a real support to surgeons during their operational job. This includes - but it is not limited to - novel sensors and systems and software for data analysis and visualization. In particular the use of intraoperational probes is eased if the position of the probe within the operational field can be exactly calculated by the supporting software. Commercial systems have already been developed for this purpose but their complexity and cost reduces their usability for the majority of probes. This paper presents a simple approach to calculate the probe position within the operational field that requires a minimum cost.
