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.
