QST, Leading the way to better pain treatment

Leiden University Medical Center walks the edge of science in implementing personalized pain treatment based on an individual’s personal pain profile.
This novel webinar series addresses the use of Quantitative Sensory Testing (QST) in clinical pain treatment. The webinars cover the science behind the use of QST in the pain clinic, the types of tests that may be indicative, and bring forth case reports of how QST contributed to better pain management.


Part 2/3: QST, a practical guide

Dr. Monique van Velzen introduces a practical approach on quantitative sensory testing. Commonly used methods and utilities are discussed to cover a wide range of sensory abnormalities.


Part 1/3:  QST  - From science to clinic and back

Prof. Albert Dahan discusses the scientific background of quantitative sensory tests in clinical pain practice.

Part 2/3: QST -  A practical guide

Dr. Monique van Velzen follows a practical approach on quantitative sensory testing. 

Part 3/3: QST - Leading the way to better pain treatment

Dr. Marieke Niesters focuses on the clinical applicability of quantitative sensory testing. 

Good things come in small packages: the Tiny Thermode for TSA 2

Have you always wanted to give a very localized stimulus at a small body site like the face or the teeth? From intraoral QST to testing of female pelvic pain: Medoc’s new Tiny Thermode for the TSA2 may be the solution. In the new webinar dedicated to this thermode, Masha Aronovich, Scientific Affairs Manager at Medoc, presents its shape and dimensions, rates, temperature range, and more. Masha shared some Tiny Thermode’s possible applications and potential contribution to your research or clinical work.

Intro to Thermal Quantitative Sensory Testing (QST)

During the webinar, we demonstrate various modalities of static and dynamic QST, such as sensory and pain threshold tests, conditioned pain modulation (CPM), temporal summation, and more. We will discuss the ways to perform different tests with Medoc’s thermal devices and software, as well as the scientific and clinical value of thermal QST, as demonstrated in the literature.

External control – integrate thermal stimuli in the flow of your experiment

This webinar is dedicated to External Control capabilities of Medoc's TSA 2 system, where we will demonstrate the ways to control the TSA 2 software from an external program. External control will allow you to develop dynamic protocols using MATLAB® or other programming languages, implement the thermal stimulation into multi-modality experiments, combine it with other types of stimulation, and much more.

New CHEPS for TSA 2 – Fast. Precise. Easy.  

This webinar is an exploration of what Medoc's new CHEPS for TSA2 has to offer. During the webinar, we presented the new CHEPS specifications – its high rates, broad temperature range, large and continuous stimulation area, and more - and their potential contribution to your research or clinical work.

TSA-2 - New capabilities - new possibilities

During the webinar, we discussed the new features and capabilities of Medoc’s recently released TSA 2 device, such as dual thermode use, fast rates, use of the device in the fMRI environment, etc., and how those can contribute to your research or clinical work.
