1. A patient treatment system, comprising:

  • a non-transitory computer-readable medium having instructions that, when executed;

    receive a first input corresponding to a location of a first signal delivery device implanted in a patient, the first signal delivery device including a first plurality of contacts;

    establish a first positional relationship between the location of the first signal delivery device and an anatomical feature of the patient;

    receive a second input corresponding to a location of a second signal delivery device implanted in the patient, the second signal delivery device including a second plurality of contacts;

    establish a second positional relationship between the location of the second signal delivery device and at least one of the location of the first signal delivery device or the anatomical feature of the patient;

    identify one or more contacts of the first plurality of contacts for delivering therapy to the patient, wherein the identified one or more contacts are (a) located at a target vertebral level of the patient, and (b) have impedance values within a pre-established range;

    based at least in part on impedance values of one or more of the second plurality of contacts, align a computer-based image of the second signal delivery device relative to a computer-based image of the first signal delivery device; and

    automatically identify a signal delivery parameter value for a pulsed electrical signal that is to be delivered to the patient via at least one of the first signal delivery device or the second signal delivery device, wherein the signal delivery parameter value has a predetermined correlation with at least one of the first positional relationship or the second positional relationship.
