A novel clinical medical tool for surgical operation of deep brain stimulation was fabricated and evaluated. Dedicated micro-CMOS image sensor was mounted on the tip of quite fine probe tube. The probe has the same diameter as a probe that is utilized in surgical operation. A light source LED was also mounted on the tip of probe. Imaging trial using a postmortem brain was performed with the fabricated probe. The probe can be inserted into a brain easily and take still images of the brain.
