Novel MRI technique could help patients with severe depression

new mri technique

A major trial has used MRI neuronavigated Transcranial Magnetic Simulation (TMS) to help patients with severe depression, with symptoms eased for at least six months.

The results of the trial found that with MRI TMS on average, participants showed substantial improvements in the severity of their depression, anxiety and thinking. Participants also had better function and quality of life over 26 weeks with TMS.

This was a substantial increase on the previous reported improvements lasting only one to three months.
