 The two principle targets for deep brain stimulation or lesioning in patients with Parkinson's disease, the subthalamic nucleus (STN) and the globus pallidus internus (GPi), reveal a high degree of individual variability which is relevant to the planning of stereotactic operations. Both nuclei can clearly be delineated in T2WI spin echo MRI which was acquired under stereotactic conditions in general anesthesia before surgery. Such images of 35 patients served for retrospective morphometric… CONTINUE READING
