Localisation of the subthalamic nucleus using Radionics Image Fusion and Stereoplan combined with field potential recording. A technical note.
Subthalamic nucleus stimulation is an effective therapy for alleviating parkinsonian tremor, rigidity and bradykinesia. Although microelectrode recording is said to be essential for accurate targeting, this often prolongs the operation and the multiple recording tracts required may increase the incidence of complications, particularly haemorrhage. We describe a technique for implantation of deep brain electrodes in the subthalamic nucleus using MRI/CT fusion for anatomical localisation follow...Expand abstract
