An uncomplicated deep brain stimulator is sited in the left globus pallidus for dystonia.
Otherwise, this is a normal study. No gross intracranial hemorrhage. No large space-occupying lesion or brain edema. No loss of grey-white differentiation in the visible areas. No hydrocephalus. The skull is unremarkable and the mastoid air spaces are clear.
This is an uncomplicated deep brain stimulator as stated by the clinical history on a previous radiology examination.
