The newest technology in rTMS is called NeuroNavigation (sometimes called Frameless Stereotaxy). Using 3-D localization on both the person and the magnet, a special, dedicated computer calculates the exact part of the brain being stimulated. This increases precision and makes brain mapping more exact.
The system operates either using the data from a patients unique MRI, or an average estimation if MRI is not available.
We are the first (and only) clinic south of Los Angeles to implement this technology, beginning 10/27/2015.
The increase in accuracy of stimulation of brain targets is astonishing. This improved treatment may be more effective and improve the quality of life for some patients.
