Ultrasound technique

 

Amongst newer techniques is MRI guided focused ultrasound (MRgFUS) which is a heat based treatment using high intensity ultrasound under MRI guidance in a completely non-invasive fashion.


Ultrasound, in what case?

MRgFUS is ideally suited for women without any scarring on the abdomen and who have a small number of fibroids that are suitably located with no bowel in the path of the ultrasound beam. For those women unsuitable for MRgFUS treatment embolization is usually a suitable alternative.

Others non-surgical treatments:

- Drug treatment
- Embolization
