A TMS Technician is a medical professional who specializes in the use of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to treat patients with mental illness. TMS is a non-invasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate the brain and has been shown to be an effective treatment for depression, anxiety, and other psychiatric disorders.
TMS Technicians are responsible for operating the TMS machine and delivering the treatment to patients. They must monitor patients during their treatment sessions to ensure that they are comfortable and safe. In addition, they are responsible for keeping detailed records of each patient’s treatment session.
TMS Technicians work closely with psychiatrists and other mental health professionals to develop treatment plans for their patients. Treatment plans vary based on the individual needs of the patient.
TMS Technicians must have a thorough understanding of the TMS machine and how it works. They must also be familiar with the various psychiatric disorders that can be treated with TMS. These disorders include:
