Localite TMS Navigator is an image-guided tool to assist in the positioning of a transcranial magnetic stimulator (TMS) coil over a subject's brain. The Localite system includes the software, position sensor and all the related hardware (except the TMS-stimulator) to perform image-guided TMS.

Small objects, called trackers, are attached to the TMS coil, and the subject. These trackers are monitored, or "seen" by an optical position sensor (optical camera). This information is send to a computer which, after a calibration procedure, displays the position and orientation of the coil on the subject's individual MRI.

Thus, Localite TMS Navigator helps to position the coil very precisely in reference to the subjects brain shown in an individual anatomical MR dataset.

Information sheets on how to use the Localite are available in the TMS lab. The complete Localite manual is available at the labmanager (Dennis Schutter).
