The Sonalleve MR-HIFU (MR-guided High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) fibroid therapy system, by Philips, offers a non-invasive treatment for uterine fibroids. It combines the power of two modalities by integrating an advanced high intensity focused ultrasound system into the patient table of the Achieva MR system. It uses focused ultrasound waves to heat and coagulate tissue deep inside the body without damaging intervening tissue, and combines this with advanced planning, guidance and temperature monitoring provided by MR. The procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis, with an almost full recovery within a few days.
