Navigated rTMS in Psychiatry

Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) in combination with MRI guided neuronavigation can be used in psychiatry for the treatment of a variety of disorders such as depression (MDD), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and dysthymic disorder. Patients with MDD or OCD and resistant to pharmacotherapy have been treated successfully with (navigated) TMS. Standard TMS protocols for stimulating the targeted brain area are available for both applications. We offer TMS machines and MRI guided neuronavigation (Neural Navigator) separately as well as a complete solution (package) for research and clinical treatment. The complete solution is CE certified for medical use in the EU and FDA cleared for clinical use in the USA.
