What We Do
One of the most crucial pieces of information needed for neurosurgery is the tumor’s or other brain lesion’s location in relation to the essential functions and their connections in the patient’s brain.
SmartFocus® nTMS mapping with Nexstim’s NBS (Navigated Brain Stimulation) system is used when the tumor is thought to be close to important motor and language areas in the patient’s brain. SmartFocus® brain maps are useful when deciding the treatment option.
The Nexstim NBS system is the only FDA cleared and CE marked navigated TMS system for presurgical mapping of the speech and motor cortices of the brain.
If pharmaceuticals are not working or a non-drug option is wanted, SmartFocus® nTMS conducted with Nexstim’s NBT® (Navigated Brain Therapy) system might be the answer for treatment of major depressive disorder or for chronic neuropathic pain.
It is important that TMS targets consistently the right location in the patient’s brain. We at Nexstim use the latest science – 3D brain imaging and proven navigation of the TMS – to be able to personalize the stimulation target and level for each patient and their unique brain anatomy.
Nexstim NBT® system is FDA cleared for the treatment of major depressive disorder and CE marked for the treatment of major depression and chronic neuropathic pain.
