1. A system, comprising:
a display; and
a processor, configured:
to receive a set of tracking data indicating a position of an intrabody tool from a tracking system, and
to modify an image that includes a representation of a wall of an anatomical cavity, by:
overlaying an icon that represents the intrabody tool on a portion of the image that corresponds to a location of the intrabody tool within the anatomical cavity,
determining a position on the wall that a distal tip of the intrabody tool is pointed at based on the set of tracking data,
overlaying a marker on the modified image at the position, and
updating the icon and the marker as the set of tracking data changes, and to display the modified image on the display.
