Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

MRI-guided high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) ablation is increasingly adopted for treating symptomatic uterine fibroids. As a noninvasive therapy performed on an outpatient basis, it has been viewed by patients to have distinct advantages over other treatment options. However, its breadth of clinical application is still limited. To address this issue, various techniques have been implemented.

CONCLUSION:

In this article, we discuss techniques that contribute to widening patient selection for MRI-guided HIFU therapy of uterine fibroids.
