• Concise guide for clinicians working with or learning about this treatment technique
• Considers the evidence base and a range of clinical issues Discusses establishment of rTMS treatment programs
• Reviews potential rTMS applications beyond depression

Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) treatment is increasingly being used in the management of patients with depression. Nevertheless, considerable ignorance still exists about the treatment in general psychiatric practice. This concise clinical guide will serve as a reference and practical tool for clinicians working with or learning about this treatment technique. The opening chapters provide basic information on the history and development of rTMS treatment and its mechanism of action. Use of the treatment in depression is then addressed in detail, with explanation of the evidence base and discussion of a variety of clinical issues. Side-effects of treatment are explored, and careful consideration is given to the establishment of rTMS treatment programs and the training of clinicians. The final chapters will provide a brief overview of potential rTMS applications in other psychiatric conditions and some background on related treatments.

From the reviews:

“This is a practical book for clinicians working with or wanting to learn about the use of TMS in the treatment of patients with depression. … The audience is healthcare professionals interested in understanding the mechanism of action, clinical indications, treatment variables of dose and duration, and side effects of TMS in the treatment of patients with depression and possibly in other psychiatric conditions. … Each chapter ends with a list of references.” (Edgar I. Hernandez, Doody’s Book Reviews, September, 2013)
