Reproducible coil placement using MNI
The neural navigator supports accurate reproduction of TMS coil positions using an MNI template. Similar to the standard navigation procedure, facial landmarks of the MNI template are captured on the participant's head. Next, the neural navigator adjusts the MNI template based on the geometry of the participant's head. MNI targets, like the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) can ben located on the MNI template, and used as stimulation targets. When a target is stimulated, the TMS coil position and orientation are stored. During a follow-up session, this data can be loaded, and the TMS coil position and orientation can easily be reproduced. Visualization of the reference coil position, and distance and angle indicators help guide the TMS coil to the reference position.
