These days TMS is being done all over the world. Many of the big academic medical centers are very involved in the research into why transcranial magnetic stimulation works, what it’s useful for other than depression, and how to maximize treatment results. Most of these places have a long list of FAQs. The best we’ve found so far is the information from Johns Hopkins.
As you’ll see reading other posts here, there is research data accumulating, and being analyzed, showing considerably better remission and response rates than some of the academics are reporting. Mostly the academic medical centers have very valuable answers to the good questions any of us doing TMS are so frequently asked. Besides, we at TMS Augusta want you to have information from many sources. Deciding on a treatment for depression requires doing your homework. You’re well served looking at several sources, we think.
Some medical centers are using other devices, but the most widely used device by far is the one used in our Advanced TMS with the NeuroStar Therapy System. Johns Hopkins is also using only the NeuroStar.
