Lead Localization

Introduction

General Information

Lead Localization is designed to support neurosurgeons in localizing the position of leads in medical imaging data. These leads have e.g., been implanted for a Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) therapy.

Typical Workflow

Lead Localization is typically used as a part of the Trajectory workflow, and includes the use of both required and optional additional applications. For more information, see the Software User Guides for these applications.



Steps

1.

Start Lead Localization.

2.

Select patient data in Patient Selection.

3.

Optional: Fuse image sets using Image Fusion.

4.

Optional: Segment structures using Anatomical Mapping.

5.

Optional: Create, modify and remove fiber bundles using Fibertracking.

6.

Optional: Create, modify and remove objects using SmartBrush.

7.

Localize and define leads using Lead Localization.

8.

Save as a plan and close Lead Localization.

How to Detect Leads



Step



Select Detect in the main menu.

Leads are detected and assigned names and colors.

Optional: How to Define Leads

Specific lead models can be defined by assigning the model type and various additional parameters. Based on these parameters, a corresponding lead model is visualized and the lead can be utilized in other applications that interpret this information.



Steps

1.



Select Properties.

2.

Optional: Edit the automatically assigned lead Name ①.

3.

Optional: Edit the automatically assigned Implant Date ②.

4.

Optional: Enter a Comment ③.

5.

Required: Select lead Type ④.

6.

Required: Select Location ⑤ in which the lead is situated.

7.

Optional: Select a different lead and repeat lead definition.

Define Orientation



If you have defined a directional lead, the Define Orientation view opens. Drag the orientation marker ① to rotate the orientation.

Select and hold Toggle Numbering to display how the contact numbering would be if connected to the other IPG port.
