Depression, OCD and PTSD

Depression

TMS is the next treatment option for patients who have been unresponsive to medication, experienced unacceptable side-effects from medication or simply seek a drug-free alternative.

TMS for treatment-resistant depression is TGA-approved, and is also now listed on the Medicare Benefit Schedule (MBS).

TMS has an established record of being an effective alternative to some groups of antidepressants. Research suggests that targeting the stimulation within the area of the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) can improve depressive symptoms. There are a number of methods of stimulating the DLPFC involving right and left hemispheres with low (1Hz) and high (10Hz) frequencies. Your TMS Specialist Psychiatrist will choose the most appropriate treatment for you depending on the pattern of symptoms and the specific clinical indications for TMS.

OCD & PTSD

TMS is being increasingly used for OCD, PTSD, some symptoms of psychoses (e.g. auditory hallucinations) and other psychiatric conditions. Psychiatric conditions such as OCD require specific modification to the stimulation regions (Orbitofrontal cortex) and some modification to the TMS coil (“deep coil”). To this end, Modalis follows well researched and published protocols.
