Welcome to LEAD-DBS

A MATLAB® Toolbox for DBS electrode reconstructions and visualizations based on postoperative MRI & CT imaging.

The foundation of Lead-DBS has been developed in the Movement Disorders Unit of Andrea Kühn, Clinical Research Group “Deep Brain Stimulation” (KFO247) at the Department of Neurology, Movement Disorders Unit, Charité – University Medicine (CVK), Berlin, Germany.

Since 2016, development continues among researchers from Charité – University Medicine, Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin, as well as Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Massachusetts General Hospital of Harvard Medical School.

The above image shows an examplary rendering result that has been exported to a web-compatible format and is visualized using the software BrainBrowser by Tarek Sherif of The McGill Centre for Integrative Neuroscience. Such web-compatible results can be used in localization databases e.g. on the local intranet of your hospital.
