The aim of this present work is to classify uterine fibroids by comparing the MR T1 perfusion based time-signal intensity curves of fibroid tissue with myometrium prior to HIFU ablation. Our findings in this study suggest that the newly introduced classification method could be used as the primary MRI classification parameter prior to MR-HIFU ablation not only for classifying the uterine fibroids but also predicting the treatment outcome of HIFU ablation, with the immediate NPV ratio of at least 80%.
