Abstract

Uterine leiomyomas pose a significant health issue to reproductive-age women. Many women desire uterine conservation, and previously safe and efficacious therapies have been limited. Magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound surgery is a new noninvasive therapy that has been proven to be both safe and efficacious in the treatment of fibroids.
