Uterine fibroids are the most frequent gynecological tumors that appear in women of reproductive age. They are benign monoclonal tumors that arise from smooth muscle cells of the myometrium. They are usually asymptomatic and diagnosed incidentally. When they are symptomatic they often require treatment that include hormonal, surgical treatment or embolization.


UE is a minimally invasive procedure for treatment of symptomatic uterine fibroids. MRI is the best imaging technique for diagnosis, evaluation and post-treatment radiological follow-up. The number, size and location of fibroids must be reported.
