We have developed a novel catheter system, an intelligent catheter system, which is able to control a catheter by an externally-placed controller. This system has made from master-slave mechanism and has following three components; 1) a joy stick as a master (for operators) 2) a catheter controller as a slave (for a patient), 3) a micro force sensor as a sensing device. This catheter tele-guiding system has abilities to perform intravascular procedures from the distant places. It may help to reduce the radiation exposures to the operators and also to help train young doctors.
