BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Although the subthalamic nucleus is the most frequently used target for surgical treatment of Parkinson's disease, the criteria on which it can be identified on T2-weighted images have never been clearly defined. This study was conducted to characterize the precise anatomic distribution of T2-weighted hyposignal in the subthalamic region and to correlate this hyposignal with iron content in the subthalamic nucleus. METHODS The T2-weighted MR imaging acquisitions of 15… CONTINUE READING
