Measuring the Outcomes of TMS

We can learn the effectiveness of TMS in treating depression and depressive symptoms by using the Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9). The PHQ-9 is a question-based multipurpose instrument for diagnosing, monitoring, and measuring the severity of depression. It scores the frequency of each of the nine DSM-V criteria for depression within a range of 0 (“not at all”) to 3 (“nearly every day”).

The PHQ-9 is often used as a scientific metric for the effect of a treatment on patients with major depressive disorder. Improvement over time in depressive symptoms would be indicated by progressively lower scores on the PHQ-9.
