MR Adult Brain PRE DBS - STN Protocol
Revised - 8/7/2014
Charge as Brain WO
REGARDING ALL DBS BRAIN WO SCANS:
- If the target isn’t specified in the order for pre-dbs, we have to page one of the following two people to verify if the “GPI” or “STN” sequence is needed:
Michael Kinsman, MD pager 12900
Antonia Gragg, PA-C pager 16703
- Page one of these doctors whenever we have an order for this type of scan if “GPI” or “STN” is not specified in the order notes.
- The surgical team has told me they will try to make the instructions more specific, but we need to make sure we don’t miss this on our end.
