Anatomy of the Trigeminal Nerve and Its Clinical Significance Via Fusion of Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imagery.


The Gasserian ganglion (GG) is the primary neuronal aggregation area of the trigeminal nervous system and the epidural structure outside the central nervous system, thus, it has become the most commonly used target for minimally invasive treatment of trigeminal neuralgia (TN). Whether it is the classic trigeminal radiofrequency treatment or GG balloon compression therapy, the intervention target is the GG. The anatomy and imaging anatomy of the GG of the trigeminal nerve is of great importance in the minimally invasive treatment of TN.
