Abstract

Magnetic resonance guided focused ultrasound surgery (MRgFUS) of the musculoskeletal system achieved significant results in the treatment of painful bone metastases, and recently showed promise for benign bone lesions (e.g. osteoid osteoma) and osteoarthritis (e.g. facet joint syndrome and knee osteoarthritis). MRgFUS works on the main basis of pain relief and tumor control / killing. In this case review five patients affected by different diseases not commonly treated by MRgFUS are presented.
