Uterine fibroids treatment: Focused ultrasound

One particular selection for treating uterine fibroids is noninvasive MR-guided concentrated ultrasound ablation. The procedure uses MRI as advice for the radiologist to pinpoint the location in the core of the uterine fibroid wherever the ultrasound waves will be concentrated. When several ultrasound waves converge on a one location, it creates enough heat to ruin the tissue. The procedure is repeated above and above until the central core of the fibroid is ruined.
