The word rTMS is the acronym of “repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation”, which is an effective treatment for “suicidal idea”. The ever green growing research paved way to the findings of a treatment viz., rTMS, which is exclusively to eradicate the idea of suicide from the mind of the individuals who are mentally in a status of tempting to commit suicide. With a social concern, it was decided to do a scientometric analysis on rTMS . The data indexed in the database SCOPUS is downloaded for ten years from 2008 to 2017.
