Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) in patients with failed back surgery syndrome aims to reduce neuropathic pain. However, minimal studies show a safe procedure using 3T diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) MRI for patients with SCS. Additionally, more studies looking at the neurological SCS treatment responses can lead to better optimization of SCS. It was our objective to safely develop a systematic procedure for 3T DWI MRI while also generating a map of the neural network connectivity in structures associated with pain. Long term application of this protocol aims to provide an objective assessment to SCS treatment.
