Review on MRI Guided HIFU TreatmentHIFU therapy has evolved as the non-invasive treatment for uterine fibroids. HIFU is also known as FUS is a non surgical medical procedure used to diagnose Uterine Leiomyoma, done only under the guidance of an experienced radiologist.
It is a painless hyperthermia therapy under which high-intensity focused sonic energy is applied to destroy diseased tissues through ablation. In medical terminology, Hifu therapy is a class of clinical therapies where the temperature (heat) is used to cure non-cancerous benign tumors.
In comparison to Myomectomy - a traditional method to remove the fibroids surgically, MRI guided HIFU emerged as a safe and effective therapy that has led to the development when it comes to treat uterine fibroids. Good luck.
