Robotized Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

Authors: Richter, Lars

  • Presents new, cutting-edge algorithms for robot/camera calibration, sensor fusion and sensor calibration
  • Explores the main challenges for accurate coil positioning, such as head motion, and outlines how active robotic motion compensation can outperform hand-held solutions
  • Analyzes how a robotized system in medicine can alleviate concerns with a patient’s safety, and presents a novel fault-tolerant algorithm (FTA) sensor for system safety

About this book

Robotized Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation describes the methods needed to develop a robotic system that is clinically applicable for the application of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). Chapter 1 introduces the basic principles of TMS and discusses current developments towards robotized TMS. Part I (Chapters 2 and 3) systematically analyzes and clinically evaluates robotized TMS. More specifically, it presents the impact of head motion on the induced electric field. In Part II (Chapters 3 to 8), a new method for a robust robot/camera calibration, a sophisticated force-torque control with hand-assisted positioning, a novel FTA-sensor for system safety, and techniques for direct head tracking, are described and evaluated. Part III discusses these developments in the context of safety and clinical applicability of robotized TMS and presents future prospects of robotized TMS. Robotized Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation is intended for researchers as a guide for developing effective robotized TMS solutions. Professionals and practitioners may also find the book valuable.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The audience is primarily researchers, neuroscientists, physicians, and other medical staff who use TMS in research or treatment of patients. … This is good introduction to, and description of, robotized TMS, an optimized system for noninvasive stimulation of neuronal structures for the treatment of various neurological and psychiatric conditions.” (Edgar I. Hernandez, Doody’s Book Reviews, September, 2013)
