Objective: The aim of our study was to evaluate the influence of the stimulation site relative to the dentato-rubro-thalamic tract (DRTT) on the alleviation of tremor in deep brain stimulation. Method: Ten DRTTs in five patients were investigated using preoperative diffusion tensor imaging (DTI).[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
