Uterine Fibroid Treatment – HIFU
HIFU stands for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound or High Frequency Ultrasound, this procedure is highly effective in treating uterine fibroids. HIFU is a highly precise medical procedure using high-intensity focused ultrasound to heat and destroy pathogenic tissue rapidly through ablation.
MRI guided HIFU procedures identifies tumors or fibroids in the body, and are destroyed by the ultrasound produced by the HIFU. This therapeutic ultrasound is a non-invasive method and assures the patients with no scars and no radiation. The treatment is a walk in walk out procedure with no hospitalization required. The whole process may take about 3 to 5 hours depending on the size of fibroids.
Uterine Fibroid Treatment Process through HIFU
In the MRI guided HIFU therapy, ultrasound beams are focused on diseased tissue and due to the significant energy deposition at the focus, temperature within the tissue can rise to levels from 65° to 85°C, destroying the diseased tissue by coagulation necrosis. The entire therapeutic target is treated by moving the applicator on its robotic arm in order to juxtapose multiple shots, according to a protocol designed by the physician. This technology can achieve precise ablation of diseased tissue. Because it destroys the diseased tissue non-invasively, it is also known as “Non-invasive HIFU surgery”.
