Therapeutic staff exposure to magnetic field pulses during TMS/rTMS treatments
2006 (English)In: Bioelectromagnetics, ISSN 0197-8462, E-ISSN 1521-186X, Vol. 27, no 2, 156-158 p.Article in journal (Refereed) PublishedText
Transcranial magnetic stimulation or repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS/rTMS) is currently being used in treatments of the central nervous system diseases, for instance, depressive states. The principles of localized magnetic stimulation are summarized and the risk and level of occupational field exposure of the therapeutic staff is analyzed with reference to lCNIRP guidelines for pulses below 100 kHz. Measurements and analysis of the occupational exposure to magnetic fields of the staff working with TMS/rTMS are presented.
