This thesis describes an interface that has been developed to assist in medical procedures. Several commercial systems are currently available each with their own strength and weaknesses and the goal of this interface is to leverage each of them. It is based upon a number of toolkits such as the Visualization Toolkit (VTK) and the GUI development tool QT. To facilitate the rapid deployment of highly modular applications, an Application Programming Interface (API) was created and modeled after the Model-View-Controller paradigm. The interface was then built using this API into an executable application and it provides various features such as accurate catheter navigation and the registration of data from different sources. In addition, the interface was used to investigate the accuracy of one commercial system (LocaLisa) with regards to another (CARTO).
