Alpha Omega's neuromodulation navigation systems are designed for use of neurosurgeon, neurologist or clinical neurophysiologist during Deep Brain Stimulation procedure for the treatment of movement and neurological disorders
The precision of the targeting is critical for the best clinical outcome.The physiological mapping done by Alpha Omega systems helps to refine the electrode location following the initial anatomical targeting and to eliminate inaccuracy as a result of brain shifting. An electrode, at the end of a very fine wire, is passed through various areas of the brain, where it records electrical patterns from surrounding brain structures, each structure such as Subthalamic Nucleus (STN) and GPi that are targeted for treatment of movement disorders have a distinct electrical pattern.
