Patient
female, 38 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Therapeutic ultrasound

    Sagittal T2-weighted image at screeing phase shows a huge uterine fibroid.

     
    Area of Interest: Genital / Reproductive system female; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Ablation procedures; Special Focus: Obstetrics;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Therapeutic ultrasound

    Axial perfusion-weighted image at screening phase shows the time signal intensity curve of uterine fibroid lower than that of myometrium.

     
    Area of Interest: Genital / Reproductive system female; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Ablation procedures; Special Focus: Obstetrics;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Therapeutic ultrasound

    Temperature map images show efficient ablation.

     
    Area of Interest: Genital / Reproductive system female; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Ablation procedures; Special Focus: Obstetrics;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    Therapeutic ultrasound

    One layer strategy with all treatment cells on the same plane.

     
    Area of Interest: Genital / Reproductive system female; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Ablation procedures; Special Focus: Obstetrics;
     
     
  • Figure 5
    Therapeutic ultrasound

    3-dimension contrast enhancement T1-weighted image after treatment shows near-complete ablation of uterine fibroid.
