Abstract

Accurate surgical placement is critical for successful deep brain stimulation (DBS) of Parkinson’s disease. Traditionally, this has required the patient to be awake for intra-operative physiologic testing. Here, an intra-operative MRI approach is described that allows for the patient to be under general anesthesia. The unique equipment and MRI safety requirements are detailed. MRI-guided DBS has been shown to have equivalent outcomes to microelectrode-guided DBS placement.
