Depression treatment in 3 minutes

With our Neuro-MS/D transcranial magnetic stimulator and the accompanying Neuro-MS.NET software, the time needed for a single treatment session of a major depressive disorder is reduced from 37 minutes to only 3 minutes. 

The new feature was released after clinical tests performed by Blumberger et al., (2018) in leading research hospitals in Canada showed that iTBS was non-inferior to 10Hz rTMS for the treatment of patients with treatment-resistant depression. Both types of treatment had a low number of dropouts and showed similar side-effects, safety, and tolerability profiles. However, the use of iTBS is faster and the number of patients treated per day can be increased several times without compromising clinical effectiveness. 

The 3-minute treatment protocol is now available in the Neuro-MS.NET software in addition to the standard (37 minutes) and the 19 minutes protocols for depression treatment.
