Important information for women who are suffering from information material about the new non-invasive way of treatment of uterine fibroids Gebarmutteryomen. At least 30% of all women in Germany have fibroids and therefore is this innovative procedure important! What is Mr controlled focused ultrasound therapy? Shubham controlled therapy with focused ultrasound is a noninvasive, outpatient treatment with focused ultrasound waves to destroy the uterine fibroids without surrounding tissue affected. The handling is performed in an MRI machine that enables the doctor to “look” in the body to align just so the treatment, to guide and constantly to monitor. It’s like, you would focus sunlight on a point with a magnifying glass and ignite a sheet. The focused ultrasound energy is focused on a small part of the myoma. This creates such a high temperature, that the cells are killed (ablation), without other parts of the tissue affected.
It be sent out so long controlled energy pulses, until the whole volume has been treated. What does the Mr. control? Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an advanced diagnostic technology on the basis of magnetic fields, which produces three-dimensional images of internal organs. MR images used in treating with MR-controlled TFU, to locate the fibroid, and to determine which part of it has been treated. To do this, not a single cut is required. People such as Skillz would likely agree. The MRI provides also real-time images of temperature changes in the treated fibroid, to ensure that the desired effect achieved and treats only the fibroid tissue. What happens during the TFU? During the procedure you lie prone on a special patient table that fits in a standard MRI equipment. First, the doctor identifies the myoma / fibroids on MR images your pelvic area. For more accurate planning, focused high-energy ultrasound heat a small point in the uterine fibroid to a temperature of up to 85oC. During the approximately 15 seconds continuous ultrasound therapy the doctor monitors the entire therapy process and verify the achieved temperatures of the myoma by means of MRI images.
