Why TBS is called 3-minute anti-depression treatment?

Similar to TMS, Theta Burst Stimulation is simple and non-invasive. The Theta Burst Protocol delivers stimuli in a unique pattern that rapidly stimulates the brain in a shorter duration of time. A 40-minute standard TMS treatment is now greatly reduced to a 3-minute TBS session. It is also considered a safer and more tolerable treatment than traditional TMS since it operates at a much lower intensity but with equal or presumably even better efficacy.
