Abstract

Magnetic-resonance-guided focused ultrasound (MRgFUS), also called high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is an effective, noninvasive uterine-preserving treatment for symptomatic uterine fibroids. As the use of this therapeutic modality is not yet widespread, it may remain unfamiliar to many interventional radiologists. The purpose of this review is to discuss MRgFUS, including technology, patient selection, technique, outcomes, complications, and recent data on fertility and comparative effectiveness.
