AbstractAn apparatus for assisting in the placement of a spinal cord stimulation lead with respect to the dorsal column of a patient. The apparatus detects evoked potentials which result from the controlled stimulation of spinal nerves and provides information to an operator to allow a stimulation lead to be positioned relative to a physiological midline and/or positioned along the dorsal column in a longitudinal direction.
