Personalized Neuromodulation Planning Using White Matter Tracts

Presented by Helen S. Mayberg, MD, and Ki Sueng Choi, PhD

The DBS research field is evolving from the focal effects of stimulation on the target anatomical structure to its impact on distributed brain networks. This development is paralleled by the growth of the “connectome” in neuroimaging. This presentation discussed the tractography-based connectome approach applied to subcallosal cingulate DBS for treatment-resistant depression and ALIC DBS for OCD, as well as the prospective testing of the connectome approach in a new cohort of depression subjects.

Push Button Advanced Tractography for Quantitative Assessment of White Matter Tracts

Presented by Maxime Descoteaux, PhD

Human brain white matter is composed of approximately 100,000 miles of axons. Diffusion MRI is used to assess white matter non-invasively and quantitatively. This presentation discussed a novel push button solution for advanced tractography that goes beyond classical diffusion tensor imaging (DTI). Additionally, the validation, security, and quality management necessary for a tool such as ANDI to obtain FDA-clearance was also discussed. 

Helen S. Mayberg, MD, Ki Sueng Choi, PhD, and Maxime Descoteaux, PhD hosted a live Q&A immediately following the presentations.
