Sonographically guided high-intensity focused ultrasound for the management of uterine fibroids



Sonographically guided high-intensity focused ultrasound for the management of uterine fibroids



Journal of Ultrasound in Medicine 32(8): 1353-1358



High-intensity focused ultrasound therapy has received increasing interest in the management of solid malignancies and benign tumors. Magnetic resonance imaging has always been used to define the target for controlling and monitoring the ablation. Recently, sonographically guided high-intensity focused ultrasound has been introduced to monitor the ablation process. This article provides an overview of the background, clinical use, and treatment outcomes of sonographically guided high-intensity focused ultrasound in the treatment of uterine fibroids.
