A large metallic box projects over the left hemithorax with leads traversing cranially, representing an internal pulse generator.
Deep brain stimulation is used in a variety of clinical settings, predominantly in patients with poorly controlled movement disorders.
Leads are tunnelled under the skin and the internal pulse generator (IPG) implanted in a similar location to a pacemaker, overlying the thoracic cavity. Leads can be identified traversing in a cranial direction.
