In brief: No surgery involved

This treatment involves no surgery (uses MRI & us).
The patient is sedated with pain medication, but is conscious, and so can be treated outside of the hospital. Since some patients have reported successful pregnancy afterward, it may be good option for women of childbearing age. While it is more costly up front, patients report few adverse events, and may have decreased costs over the long term.

In brief: ExAblate

The exablate uses MRI guided focused ultrasound surgery (mrgfus) technology, which combines magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with focused ultrasound.
The MRI is used to visualize anatomy, aid in planning the treatment, and monitoring temperatures and thermal dose in real time during the treatment. This thermal feedback allows the physician to control and adjust the treatment in real time.
