PowerMag View!*

The PowerMAG View!* 3D-Neuronavigation system visualizes the electromagnetic hot-spot of the coil at an individual, anatomical data record. This enables the TMS system to stimulate the target with great precision. The PowerMAG View!* combines functionality with simple handling. The result: Intuitive positioning with superb precision and reproducibility.

The PowerMAG View!* 3D-Neuronavigation system can naturally be combined with all PowerMAG stimulators and any stimulation coils from MAG&More.

The neuronavigation software PowerMAG View!* makes the precise positioning of the TMS coil possible!

The PowerMAG View!* TMS navigation system uses infrared impulses in order to localize stimulation points. Its system is composed of an infrared camera system which is focused both on the head of the patient as well as the stimulation coil; the infrared signals are reflected back to the camera by the previously positioned unique markers/reflectors. This results in a highly precise 3D model of the head to coil positioning. Depending on the utilized camera type, this positioning is sampled 2o to 5o times per second.


The increasing use of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) in medicine requires individual and precise positioning of the TMS coil at the selected brain region.

System Solution

Combination of Navigation and TMS

The PowerMAG View!* neuro-navigation system is part of the PowerMAG product family and is precisely tailored to use with the PowerMAG stimulators. The integrated system offers our customers the advantage of a significant reduction in installation expenditure and support from a single source, in contrast to external navigation systems.

The navigation system is completely integrated into the TMS device trolley - the flexible articulated arm enables optimum alignment of the camera. Coils were developed exclusively for the PowerMAG View!*, which incorporate multiple navigation points in their housings. This dramatically simplifies the co-registration of the coil and pushes the precision of the navigated TMS to its peak

NDI Vicra Camera

The Polaris Vicra tracks 3D positions with sub-millimetre measurement accuracy and repeatability. The most subtle coil and head movements are precisely tracked and localized in real-time, with volumetric accuracy to 0.25 mm and 95% confidence interval of 0.5 mm.

NDI Camera Vega (optional)

It is possible to upgrade from the Vicra to the Vega camera – which provides an even larger work space for e.g. applications in which the subject is moving.

Tracker, Marker and Pointer

Trackers are elementary components for the co-registration of the coil and the head. Two Trackers with different characteristics are attached to both the coil and the head (While using multiple TMS coils trackers with different geometries are attached). Thus the coils and the head are recorded and differentiated from one another in the coordinate system of the navigation system.

The markers mounted on the trackers reflect the infrared signal transmitted by the camera. This signal is again received by the camera and from this the system calculates the exact positions in space. This technology has the advantage that the tracker is fully free to move as a result of the wireless design. Furthermore, trackers and markers have no electronic parts that could be impaired by the TMS itself.

A pointer is required for the co-registration of head and coil. This pointer is a special form of marker with which the reference points on the coil and the head can be sampled in order to define their exact positions. A highest degree of precision in the trackers, pointers and markers is a prerequisite for precise navigation results.

Fastenings for the Trackers

MAG&More offers suitable fastenings which enable a simple attachment of the tracker to the coil or the head cap. The ball joint of the coil fastening enables optimum alignment of the tracker to the camera. A second tracker fastening is also included which can easily be clipped onto a head cap.

Medical PC

All of the calculations necessary for the navigation system are carried out in our powerful PC. This PC system fulfils the strict requirements of medical legislation. In conjunction with our LCD screen, this represents a secure equipment combination in medical technology.

Foot Switch Reader

The foot switch reader offers the ability to connect a foot switch to a navigation system PC as an input device via the USB interface. In addition, the footswitch can be linked to a stimulator so that each stimulation can be immediately registered in the PC during the stimulation process.

Foot Pedal

A double foot pedal for PowerMAG View!* simplifies your work with the navigation system. The various actions, e.g. confirmation of the reference point, can be carried out in the navigation software by actuating the switch.



The user interface of the PowerMAG View!* user software is designed so intuitively that you can start with the navigation of the TMS quickly and simply. Intelligent and powerful algorithms such as the fully automatic head and brain segmentation or surface reconstruction, facilitate the handling of the raw MR data and accelerate the process through to the start of the TMS navigation.

The step-by-step assistant utilisises an intuitive user interface which allows you to start with the TMS navigation without complications.


A great advantage of the PowerMAG View!* software is that it is compatible with other external software, such as BrainVoyager. For example, the fMRI Analysis is a helpful facility to show active regions of the brain, colour-coded. This data can be imported into PowerMAG View!*. Providing a precise overview of the stimulation target. You can certainly contact us directly with any questions regarding the compatibility of the software.

Positioning / Setup

The PowerMAG View!* simplifies the positioning of the components. The camera window with markers and pointer shown, enables quick checking of the correct setup. Checking and correction is possible at any time.


The positioning of the target marker is simply implemented by clicking on the desired position in the 3D brain model. You can also enter the stimulation target manually, determined either in the APC coordinate system or in Talairach space.The interactive display of the software shows both the distance to the target and the orientation angle of the coil relative to the desired position. This enables you to work more accurately and faster than ever before.


The PowerMAG View!* neuronavigation visualises the working area of the coil with an individual, anatomical 3D data record, in real-time. Various different types of coil displays (3D model, transparent frame model) as well as head and brain models (3D models, semi-transparent 3D model, transparent frame model) can be selected for intuitive positioning of the coil. Functionalities such as turning, tilting, sliding, zooming and sagittal, transversal and coronal sections of the head and brain model are likewise fundamental parts of PowerMAG View!*

Individual colour settings for the working environment assist the user to identify important information such as contrast.

The conventional 2D view (sag, cor, tra) of the MR tomography is likewise available at any time. The views can be exported as images at any time for documentation or for training purposes.
