We have demonstrated that the area defined by DWI and cT1WI are highly correlated after treatment of uterine fibroids by MRg-FUS. The experimental data indicate that the combination of DWI and cT1WI can effectively be used in the assessment of the treatment of uterine fibroids by MRg-FUS ablation and the areas are highly matched.
