OBJECT Due to the lack of internal anatomical detail with traditional MR imaging, preoperative stereotactic planning for the treatment of tremor usually relies on indirect targeting based on atlas-derived coordinates. The object of this study was to preliminarily investigate the role of probabilistic tractography-based thalamic segmentation for deep brain stimulation (DBS) targeting for the treatment of tremor. METHODS Six patients undergoing bilateral implantation of DBS electrodes in the… CONTINUE READING
