MRI- test as non-invasive study procedure for uterine fibroids
According to the United State researchers they are close to discovery of MRI that could guide them through HIFU. Through this study they could lead to quicker recovery with less after effects of the treatments. The procedure known as MRI-guided HIFU is carried out by the magnetic resonance imaging to focus heat generating, high intensity ultrasound to figure out various grown parts. The HIFU procedure can be conducted without general anesthesia. This could easily and quickly detect the problem and hence could be treated properly. This is a big advancement in field of science.
Aytekin Oto, MD, professor of radiology and surgery and director of abdominal magnetic resonance imaging at the University of Chicago Medicine explains, “MRI-guided HIFU has the potential to treat uterine fibroids in a non-invasive way. Subjects are not exposed to surgery or radiation and should be able to return to daily normal activities the day after undergoing this procedure.”
