Augmented and Virtual Reality techniques are becoming more widespread and Medicine is one of the fields which can benefit from their use. In this paper we describe a smartphone application that applies these two techniques to provide visualizations of a patient's brain. This application was designed with the goal of guiding a physician in a medical procedure called Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), however it can be adapted and extended to other uses. The application was submitted to user tests involving two experts in TMS and researchers in Biomedical Engineering, the results were positive and provided useful feedback that will be considered when further developing the application.
