GitHub Actions CI statuss Test coverage Documentation Status

Author: Stephen Thompson

scikit-surgerycalibration is part of the SciKit-Surgery software project, developed at the Wellcome EPSRC Centre for Interventional and Surgical Sciences, part of University College London (UCL).

scikit-surgerycalibration is tested on Python 3.6-8.

scikit-surgerycalibration contains algorithms to perform calibrations useful during surgery, for example pointer calibration, ultrasound calibration, and camera calibration.

Please explore the project structure, and request or implement your desired functionality.


  • Pivot Calibration for pivot calibration.
  • Calibration of mono or stereo tracked video data, calculating camera intrinsics and handeye transformation.
