Our study showed the tendency that the T2* values of type3 fibroids were obviously higher than type1 and type2. That implied the higher oxygenation of type3 fibroids, maybe associated with the mechanism that poor effect of the MR-HIFU in type3 fibroids. The oxygenation may increase in the residual non-necrotic area of the fibroids in the short-term after MR-HIFU
