Precision, computer-guided TMS

What is neuronavigation?

Standard TMS is completed using manual measurements which can leave room
for human error. Neuronavigation is a computer based tracking system that
ensure the coil is always in the right spot

About neuronavigation

Placing the magnet in the right spot is key
to ensuring the best possible treatment outcome.
Rather than relying on the human eye,
neuronavigation uses a computer to find the
right part of your brain associated with positive
mood and ensure the magnet remains
there throughout treatment.
Placing the magnet in the right spot is key to ensuring the best possible treatment outcome. Rather than relying on the human eye, neuronavigation uses a computer to find the right part of your brain associated with positive mood and ensure the magnet remains there throughout treatment.

Targeting the right spot is important

If the magnet is not placed in the right place, your treatment is less likely to work

Neuronavigation finds this spot
with sensors

A sensor is placed on your head and the TMS coil and a camera locates the right spot

Your head may move during treatment

A slight movement may mean that your treatment becomes less effective. Neuronavigation will alert our TMS Clinician if your head moves and allow them to adjust it

“Neuronavigation based on individual anatomy can improve precision of coil positioning and may lead to a superior therapeutic effect of prefrontal TMS”
