(MRgFUS) Magnetic resonance guided focused ultrasound is a surgical procedure that uses high intensity focused ultrasound waves to destroy tissue in combination with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which guides the treatment.
With focused ultrasound waves uterine fibroids are heated and destroyed (ablated) inside the MRI device , allowing the physician to plan, monitor and control the treatment with temperature sensitive images while it is in progress.

High Intensity Focused UltrasoundMRI Resource Directory:<br> - Ultrasound Therapy -
 
(HIFU / FUS) High intensity focused ultrasound is used in thermotherapy or thermoablation e.g., for the treatment of benign prostate hyperplasia or under study for the treatment of cancer.
An applied ultrasound probe (see transrectal sonography) focuses sound waves at one spot, elevating the tissue temperature to a point that the tissue destroys. Generally, lower frequencies (from 250 kHz to 2000 kHz) are used than for medical diagnostic ultrasound, but significantly higher time-averaged intensities.

Ultrasound therapy uses high energy sound waves to treat different diseases. Historically, the use of ultrasonic waves in therapy began before the wide use as a diagnostic medical imaging tool. Dependend on the intensity, ultrasound therapy reach from the thermal effect used in physical therapy to the destruction of tissue with lithotripsy.

Types of ultrasound treatment:
point brachytherapy;
point high intensity focused ultrasound;
point magnetic resonance guided focused ultrasound;
point lithotripsy;
point thermotherapy;
point low intensity pulsed ultrasound.
