Patient-Specific Finite Element Simulations of Deep Brain Stimulation – Electrode Placement Using Leksell Coordinates
2016 (English)Conference paper, Poster (Other academic)
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is used for symptomatic treatment of movement disorders. Finite element method (FEM) simulations are useful for estimating the affected region around the electrode which can help determine the optimal target. This paper presents how the patient-specific electrode placement is simplified by the use of two Leksell coordinates in the postoperative imaging artefacts. The method is implemented in Comsol Multiphysics and exemplified by a patient-specific simulation in zona incerta (Zi).
