Deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgery has been shown to improve the quality of life for patients with various motor dysfunctions. The success of DBS is directly related to the proper placement of the electrodes, which requires accurate detection and identification of the relevant target structures. We present a deep-learning based automatic, robust and accurate segmentation technique from 7 Tesla MRI acquisitions of subcortical structures for DBS surgery planning and post-operative electrode localization. DBS targets and related structures include the subthalamic nucleus, substantia nigra, red nucleus and the internal and external compartments of the globus pallidus.
