BACKGROUND Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and microelectrode recording (MER) are commonly used to guide stereotactic procedures on the subthalamic nucleus (STN). Little is known about the correlation between the position of the STN as seen on MRI and that as determined by MER mapping. We compared these in 10 patients with Parkinson's disease. METHODS The position of the STN was determined by intraoperative MER findings and stereotactic axial T2 magnetic resonance images with 2-mm slice… CONTINUE READING
