Framed stereotaxic surgery remains the most accurate and
precise method for targeting deep-brain stimulation
(DBS) but lacks effective planning software. We
developed a novel tool (Tactics) for a clinical study on
DBS in treating depression. Targeting was performed with
both Tactics and a stereotactic frame and a mean
software accuracy of 0.7 mm was calculated,
demonstrating a high level of accuracy. The system is
open-source and can be extended to include other
functional and electrophysiological mapping data.
Tactics has demonstrated to be both effective and
intuitive and has been adopted by an ongoing clinical
study as their standard tool.
