Parametric Curves to Trace the TMS Coils Windings

Unambiguous design of each coil, applied in Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) procedure, involves assigning it a set of parameters. The use of just a few or several, real-valued parameters for this purpose is convenient, and renders the optimization procedure less complicated. Hence, using parametric curves is an appropriate method. Several types of coils used in TMS procedure are presented. Each of them is characterized by a set of parameters that, coupled with five others that describe the shift and rotation of the coil in space, allow a clear characterization of the device, as well as its position relative to the patient’s body. This approach is related to the basic aspects of optimization in biomedical engineering.
