OCD and dTMS: An overview
Deep transcranial magnetic stimulation (dTMS) is a type of TMS that uses a specially designed coil to achieve deeper and broader penetration of electromagnetic stimulation into the brain. In people with obsessive-compulsive disorder, stimulation of the medial prefrontal cortex has been found to improve symptoms.
In 2020, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved dTMS for the treatment of OCD. TMS Clinics Australia is the first to offer dTMS as an adjunctive treatment for obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) in Australia.
