After a successful reconstruction, you can obtain 2D images of each contact in its location within the brain tissue. To select this option, the box
 Write out 2D must be checked within the Lead-DBS main window.
Example of a 2D-slice export
The 2D images are created using the localization settings obtained in the reconstruction and the manual correction. They help to better understand how the electrode contacts relate to the surrounding brain structures.
Certain features can be changed to enhance the understanding of the structures surrounding the contacts:
Labels and color:
Specific brain areas are labeled and colored for easier identification. The labels can be turned off or on by checking the
Label box. The color of the contour can also be selected from a pop-up window.
Determines the final size of the 2D image.
Images are stored as
*.png files within the patient folder, and are named according to the electrode and the plane they belong.
