There are currently 11 medical centers in the USA treating ET patients with MRgFUS on a regular basis.
MRgFUS is a noninvasive thermoablative technique that combines the anatomic detail and thermal monitoring capabilities of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) with the therapeutic potential of High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HI-FU).
Apart from surgical and medical strategies, the alternative minimal invasive approach of uterine artery embolization and the noninvasive high frequency magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound surgery (MRgFUS), which have been recently applied in myoma treatment, have not been adequately studied in cases, where fertility preservation is desired.
Advancements, such as MRgFUS allow us to offer suitable women the option of a fertility preserving treatment without invasive surgery.

Treatment options include hysterectomy, minimally invasive uterine artery embolization (UAE) and a noninvasive MR-guided focused ultrasound (MRgFUS) procedure.
In MR-guided focused ultrasound ablation (MRgFUS), high-intensity focused ultrasound is used during an MR scan to thermally destroy pathogenic tissue--in this case fibroids.
MR-guided focused ultrasound ablation (MRgFUS) has a "reported symptom improvement in patients that is very comparable to the literature for myomectomy and uterine artery embolization," Dr.
GnRH therapy also has been shown to improve ablative effects on fibroid tissue in women who underwent MR-guided focused ultrasound (MRgFUS).
