Abstract

Magnetic resonance-guided ultrasound delivers destructive energy into deep body structures with great accuracy and repeatability with an excellent safety profile. The use of this technology for the treatment of uterine fibroids is already becoming widespread. This article reviews the further areas of magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound application that are evolving and how they will be applied to other parts of the body.
