Value of Susceptibility-Weighted Imaging (SWI) for Trajectory planning of Electrodes in Deep Brain Stimulation

M. Mahvash, D. Falk, O. Jansen & H.M. Mehdorn
Objective: Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is an effective neurosurgical treatment of movement disorders. Susceptibility Weighted Imaging (SWI) is a relatively new MRI sequence used in diagnostic neuroradiology for better visualization of susceptibility differences between tissues, particularly of brain[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
