Recruitment Details
Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations
The first High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) treatment was on February 8, 2009 and the last patient was treated on March 5, 2010. 2 study sites enrolled patients, 2 from St. Lukes in Houston, TX and 9 from National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD.

Pre-Assignment Details
Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment
Patients were screened prior to treatment and the primary exclusion criteria was either uterine size per gestational age or fibroid size.

Reporting Groups
  Description
HIFU Treated Women indicated for total abdominal hysterectomy underwent a single Magnetic Resonance guided-High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (MR-HIFU) session for uterine fibroid ablation prior to surgery. Subjects were followed up until the date of hysterectomy, or for 30 days if hysterectomy was declined.
