Scar-free Ultrasound Treatment For Uterine Fibroid : Mri Guided Hifu

A Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) guided High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a safe, non-invasive, scar-free painless, non-surgical solution for eliminating uterine fibroids in women.

Newly launched in India, HIFU is a major breakthrough in the medical industry. It is an advanced non-invasive uterine fibroids treatment option available out there to treat the non-cancerous tumors usually developed in the female's uterus. One in five women suffers from slow-growing fibroid tumors. Its main symptoms are excessive bleeding, severe abdominal pain and cramps, prolonged menstrual periods, pelvic pressure or pain, frequent urination, backache, constipation, etc.

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound is the latest therapy to treat uterine fibroids in comparison to a Myomectomy. It is another method to cure the fibroids surgically under which fibroid cells are killed by simply cutting the blood supply using minimally-invasive procedure called uterine fibroid embolisation. Patients suffering from uncontrolled high blood pressure and diabetes cannot go for Myomectomy. On the contrary, everyone can take MRI guided HIFU is one great option to cure Uterine Fibroids.

FDA approved HIFU is a magnetic resonance image guided treatment for uterine fibroids, especially for females who do not want surgery. It fights against tumors by using heat generated via ultrasound waves. Under HIFU, firstly an image of fibroid is captured using using an MR scan then the same machine is fitted with an ultrasound system and the patient is asked to lie down on the belly. A trained radiologist throws the ultrasound rays on the fibroid affected area under a specific temperature to shrink the the tumours completely.

Unlike traditional surgery which takes several months for recovery, HIFU brings the patient's healthy life with no scar, no radiation, no anaesthesia and 24 hours recovery time. An MRI-guided high intensity focused ultrasound solution is an alternate non-invasive and non-surgical treatment to cure uterine fibroids in women. The whole process may take anywhere between three to six months.

"Over the past few years, I was facing pain in my lower abdomen, especially during periods. After consulting with my family gynaecologist and her recommendation for a unique MRI guided HIFU, , I have gone for it and I am very happy after taking the High Intensity Focused Ultrasound treatment to get rid of non-cancerous tumors - Uterine fibroids. I was a three-hour-long session during which I felt a slight sensation that occurred when concentrated ultrasound waves passed through my uterus to cure the fibroids. Many thanks to HIFU. It made me possible to continue my normal life with no cuts, no anaesthesia and no surgery," said Richa Singh (name changed on request), a college student.
