In brief: There is no max size
But fibroids <10 cm are a general cut off.
Also patients with less than 5 fibroids, no adenomyosis are good candidates to. Fibroids that can be resected hysteroscopically or that are calcified are typically not recommended for exablate which uses focused us energy to create thermal destruction of the tissue destroying the blood supply feeding the fibroid.

In brief: Unclear
The exblate system uses MRI guided ultrasonic therapy to treat fibroids.
To date, about 6500 women have undergone this procedure. It is not yet considered standard therapy. We look forward to new data to help us understand success rates and the ideal patient for this type of treatment.
