A brand new and totally non-invasive procedure that uses high-intensity ultrasound waves to heat and destroy uterine fibroid tissue has been shown to significantly reduce and/or relieve the symptoms associated with fibroids in the women suffering from them.
Magnetic resonance-guided, focused ultrasound surgery (MRgFUS) is a procedure which allows a trained radiologist to target fibroids specifically and preventing damage to any of the surrounding healthy tissues.
Fiona M. Fennessy, M.D., Ph.D., who is the instructor in radiology at the Harvard Medical School and the lead researcher said “This treatment immediately stops blood flow in the fibroid tissue, which results in a significant, sustained decrease in symptoms for up to 12 months,”.
