Volumetric high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) guided by multiplane magnetic resonance (MR) thermometry has been shown to be a safe and efficient method to thermally ablate large tissue volumes. However, the induced temperature rise and thermal lesions show significant variability, depending on exposure parameters, such as power and timing, as well as(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this prospective multicenter study was to assess the safety and technical feasibility of volumetric Magnetic Resonance-guided High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (MR-HIFU) ablation for treatment of patients with symptomatic uterine fibroids. METHODS Thirty-three patients with 36 fibroids were treated with volumetric MR-HIFU(More)
