Super excited for our Advanced Modality Training Day! We’re gearing up to empower the next generation with the ultimate IONM knowledge!
Ever wondered what sets a TcMEP apart from a direct cortical MEP (DcMEP)? It’s all about practice, practice, practice! DcMEPs allow us to localize stimulation to a small area of cortex and keep the region of activation isolated to the superior part of the motor pathway. We use a contact from a subdural grid placed directly on the brain as the anode and a scalp electrode at the contralateral mastoid as the cathode. If you want to protect the majority of the motor pathway on the surgical side then DcMEPs are a must.
Our training journey is nothing short of amazing! It kicks off with riveting didactic material, followed by thrilling group virtual reviews, and the grand finale – in-person, one-on-one training right in the operating room!
Our goal? To ensure every clinician out there is supercharged with the highest level of training! Let’s go, team!
Here Josh is training Perry on three advanced modalities: phase reversal, direct cortical stimulation, and ECoG.
