Neuroscientists call for use of Ultra-High Field MRI in deep brain stimulation

Neuroscientists call for use of Ultra-High Field MRI in deep brain stimulation

The efficacy of deep brain stimulation as a treatment for neurological disorders can be considerably improved by using Ultra-High Field Magnetic Resonance Imaging (UHF-MRI) instead of traditional 3T and 1.5T MRI. This experimental technique, which is yet to be approved by health authorities, should therefore be further investigated and refined. This is the view of a new paper co-authored by Spinoza Centre researcher Birte Forstmann and published in the latest edition of Trends in Biotechnology.
