Planner is a software that assists in MR-guided electrophysiology. It was designed by Shay Ohayon, a grad student in the Tsao lab. The software enables easy visualization of the target site and allows the user to place virtual chambers, grids, and electrodes with different designs. It can also find optimal trajectories by finding the optimal grid hole, rotation and tilt angle. The other key feature of this software is its ability to automatically solve the registration problem between MR space and stereotactic space. It can report the stereotactic parameters needed to place the manipulator's tip and align it with the planned chamber position in any desierable direction:
Recently, we added a new feature that allows to design custom grids with each grid hole going in arbitrary direction. Such grids can be automatically exported as a Solidworks model and printed on a high end 3D printer (Projet).
