Understanding the Power of Magnetic Resonance Therapy -- MRT(sm) -- from the Parent’s Perspective.

Dr. Bradstreet will introduce the science of MRT(sm) and the ongoing research into brain physics and then introduce a panel of parents to further describe a balanced view of what may be expected from this unique form of intervention. In MRT treatment, BTC has augmented the well-established and safe technique of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) through a proprietary algorithm to deliver a patient-specific treatment based on the results of a quantitative electroencephalogram (EEG) and electrocardiography (ECG). In one expert’s words, “What the Brain Treatment Center has done is revolutionary. Using evidence-based principles with TMS, they have created a delivery system that customizes treatment based on the patient’s own QEEG...." [Dr. Kevin T. Murphy]

James Jeffrey Bradstreet, MD

Dr. Bradstreet received undergrad and medical degrees from University of South Florida. His residency training was at Wilford Hall USAF Medical Center, with training at Brooks School of Aerospace Medicine and Randolph AFB. He is an adjunct professor and faculty for Autism Collaboration & Education at Western U in CA and a visiting professor at Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine. He is extensively published on biomedical issues of autism and was PI of two landmark studies: 1) involving a new methodology to view the brain with ultrasound, and 2) a double-blind study of the use of transcranial magnetic stimulation using a method known as MRT, for the treatment of autism -- both registered with clinicaltrials.gov. Phase one of the ultrasound study was recently published in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, and the MRT study completed in June of 2014. He is director of the Brain Treatment Center of Atlanta and is licensed in Georgia, Florida, California and Arizona.

Kevin Murphy, MD

Dr. Murphy received his MS in neurophysiology from Purdue University and his MD from the University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Medicine. Dr. Murphy completed his Radiation Oncology Residency in the Department of Radiation and Cellular Oncology at the University of Chicago. In May 2005, he was recruited to the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). Dr. Murphy's clinical and research interests focus on the application of a number of novel technologies in the treatment of brain tumors in both adults and children. Dr. Murphy serves as the Chief of the UCSD Pediatric Radiation Oncology Service and is an active member of the Children’s Oncology Group (COG). Dr. Murphy is a regional resource and primary radiation oncologist for Rady Children’s Hospital and Health Center, San Diego. He is on the advisory board of the Brain Treatment Center in Newport Beach, CA.
