CustusX (, 3DSlicer ( and MITK ( are medical imaging toolkits that integrate the OpenIGTLink communication standard. In this work 3D Slicer was originally used to effectively visualise the position of the Anser system in a 3D environment. Full compatability with CustusX is the focus of current work.
