MR-guided Focused Ultrasound (MRgFUS) Ablation for the Treatment of Nonspinal Osteoid Osteoma

MR-guided Focused Ultrasound (MRgFUS) Ablation for the Treatment of Nonspinal Osteoid Osteoma

6 novembre 2014

Magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound (MRgFUS) is a novel imaging-guided surgical technique that allows the performance of noninvasive and radiation-free ablation. Presently, computed tomography (CT)-guided radiofrequency ablation, a minimally invasive percutaneous technique, is the standard for treating symptomatic osteoid osteomas. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the use of MRgFUS ablation for the treatment of nonspinal osteoid osteomas in terms of technical success, complications, and clinical success through one year of follow-up.
