This paper provides a novel method for three-dimensional tracking of ultrasound images. One of the issues to determine the position of a ultrasound image plane is the thickness of the image plane. The proposed methodology address the issue by the calibration phantom using a fiducial sphere with the diameter of 5.5 mm because comet-trail artifact can be observed in the image plane through the center of the sphere. Meanwhile, to measure the sphere center accurately by a tracking device, a pointer tool with the same sphere at the tip is also proposed. To validate the feasibility of the method, simulation and phantom tests were conducted. From the results of the phantom test, the accuracy of the calibration was 0.65, 0.40, and 0.42 mm in 10, 50, 100 points calibration. The results demonstrate that the proposed method has a great potential for accurate US probe calibration.
