A locatable endoscope (

14

) attachment including an attachment (

20

) connectable to an insertion tube portion of an endoscope for determining the endoscope's (

), fixedly positioned with respect to the attachment (

20

), which are used for determining the positions of the one or more sensors (

22

). Preferably, when the attachment (

20

14

), the one or more sensors (

22

) are distanced from elements of the endoscope which interfere with determining the positions of the one or more sensors (

22

).
