How does BrainsWay Deep TMS treatment compare with ECT?
While ECT entails electrically induced seizures, BrainsWay Deep TMS therapy stimulates brain regions using brief magnetic pulses at an amplitude similar to that used in MRI systems. ECT requires anesthesia and may entail severe side effects, including memory loss, while BrainsWay Deep TMS therapy does not involve anesthesia, has no effects on memory, and is generally well-tolerated.
