Translational Research is the research to apply and mediate a fundamental research result to the clinical field effectively. The integration of the diagnosis and the treatment is an important item in the life science field from the viewpoint of quality of therapy and minimally invasive therapy. The standardization of mechanical interface of the medicine related machine, system and a medical information system are important from the viewpoint such as prevention of medical malpractice. A high function operating robot (manipulator) as an endoscopic robot and image-guided minimally invasive device are important in the point of view of the development of a medical device shown with a medical device industry vision. We describe an outline of our ongoing development of endoscope system, intraoperative MRI (intelligent operating theater) and robot surgery system in neurosurgical field.
