概要 CLINICAL ARTICLE
OBJECTIVE This study evaluated changes of fractional anisotropy (FA) in the ventral intermediate nucleus (VIM) of the
thalamus after transcranial MR-guided focused ultrasound (TcMRgFUS) thalamotomy and their associations with clinical
outcome.
METHODS Clinical and radiological data of 12 patients with medically refractory essential tremor (mean age 76.5 years)
who underwent TcMRgFUS thalamotomy with VIM targeting were analyzed retrospectively. The Clinical Rating Scale for
Tremor (CRST) score was calculated before and at 1 year after treatment. Measurements of the relative FA (rFA) values,
defined as ratio of the FA value in the targeted VIM to the FA value in the contralateral VIM, were performed before
thalamotomy, and 1 day and 1 year thereafter.
