Computed Three-Dimensional Atlas of Subthalamic Nucleus and Its Adjacent Structures for Deep Brain Stimulation in Parkinson's Disease

Figure 4

The three-dimensional atlas of the subthalamic nucleus and its adjacent structures (3D-Subthalamus) of an illustrative case (Case  10) of a stimulated contact located in the field of Forel H, on 3D-Subthalamus. It shows that the contacts of DBS electrode are located at the zona incerta, field of Forel H and subthalamic nucleus. Best improvement of motor disturbance was obtained when the stimulated contact of DBS electrode was located in the field of Forel H. Each cube shows the direction of the 3D-Subthalamus atlas. A: anterior, P: posterior, R: right, and L: left. Red cast; a stimulated contact of the deep brain stimulation electrode. White cast: no stimulated contacts of the deep brain stimulation electrode. Black line: a lead of the deep brain stimulation electrode.
