Patients in a study of single-pulse transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) for migraine found that four pulses emitted from the TMS device twice daily reduced the frequency of migraine attacks and headache days per month.

Research

Test identifies the myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein antibody
Mayo Clinic has developed the first test available in the United States to identify the myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG) antibody in patients' blood. The MOG antibody can distinguish a spectrum of autoimmune demyelinating diseases from multiple sclerosis.


Artificial intelligence to improve outcomes for patients with stroke
Patients with intracerebral hemorrhage who receive CAT scans have to wait for results and doctors to decide on treatment. A Mayo team is developing an artificial intelligence system that analyzes the scan and outputs specific interventions to ensure better outcomes.
