The globus pallidus internus (GPi) and subthalamic nucleus (STN) (Figure 1) were the commonly used nuclei in deep brain stimulation (DBS) for the treatment of the Parkinson disease. In this study, we evaluated the QSM, T2* weighted and SWI methods for the visualization the GPi and STN on both 3T and 7T scanners. Our results showed the QSM at 7T displayed an excellent delineation of the GPi and STN, compared with T2* and SWI images.
