From: Safety of MR-guided focused ultrasound treatment of pedunculated subserosal uterine leiomyomas

Figure 1

Fifty-one-year-old woman with pedunculated subserosal leiomyoma treated by MR-guided focused ultrasound ablation. (a) Axial T2-weighted image before treatment shows a pedunculated leiomyoma (L) measuring 11.7 cm in greatest dimension, located along the left lateral aspect of the uterus (U). (b) Coronal T1-weighted image with fat suppression after intravenous gadolinium contrast agent; before treatment, shows the stalk (between arrows) connecting the pedunculated leiomyoma (L) to the uterus (U). The stalk diameter measured 3.6 cm. (c) Sagittal T1-weighted image with fat suppression after intravenous gadolinium contrast agent, immediately following focused ultrasound ablation, shows large area of non-enhancement within the pedunculated leiomyoma (L). (d) Coronal T1-weighted image with fat suppression after intravenous gadolinium contrast agent, immediately following focused ultrasound ablation, shows part of the area of non-enhancement within the pedunculated leiomyoma (L). The stalk (between arrows) connecting the leiomyoma to the uterus (U) remains perfused.
