Diagnostic TMS + EMG
The magnetic field generated by this monophasic transcranial magnetic stimulator can easily stimulate nerve structures, inducing electrical current which excites nerve cells and consequently produces action potentials. A motor evoked potential (MEP) can be registered if an electromyography (EMG) is recorded at the moment of stimulation. With the use of this approach cerebral, spinal and peripheral pathways can be studied. Such tests are especially important for studying patients with demyelinating diseases of the nervous system, in particular, multiple sclerosis, tumorous and vascular lesions. The magnetic stimulator can operate in accordance to EMG recorders of most manufacturers. We can deliver EMG systems of either 2 channels, or 4 or 8 channels.
