OBJECTIVE We present a magnetic resonance imaging-directed stereotactic system using implantable guide tubes for targeting deep brain nuclei in functional neurosurgery. METHODS Our method relies on visualization of the deep brain nuclei on high-resolution magnetic resonance images that delineate the target boundaries and enable direct targeting of specific regions of the nucleus. The delivery system comprises a modified stereoguide capable of delivering an implantable guide tube to the… CONTINUE READING
