Detailed MRI Map will Guide Precision Deep Brain Stimulation Procedures

NIBIB-funded researchers have used an ultra-sensitive MRI technique to create a detailed map of the human brain stem. The unprecedented detail of the new 3-D model will allow surgeons to perform more precise procedures such as deep brain stimulation for better results in patients with Parkinson's disease and other conditions.
