X-ray of a section through the chest of a 61-year-old patient with Parkinson's disease (PD), showing the control box of a deep brain stimulator (DBS, centre-right). This 'brain pacemaker' sends electrical impulses to electrodes implanted in the brain in order to treat the motor symptoms of Parkinson's disease.
