"While devices for transcranial stimulation have received approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for diagnostic uses, at the present time, no device has received FDA approval for transcranial magnetic stimulation of the brain as a therapeutic procedure. One device, NeoPulse (Neuronetic, Atlanta, GA) has received approval in Canada and Israel as a therapy for depression." http://www.regence.com/trgmedpol/mentalHealth/mh17.html
