  • Fibroids1: What do you see as the most important new trends in gynecology or radiology?
    Dr. James Spies: In fibroids, there are a number of new therapies that are being evaluated, including new medical therapies and ablation techniques, such as high frequency ultrasound. As a field, interventional radiology is constantly evolving. Uterine fibroid embolization, for example, basically didnt exist in the U.S. before 1997, and now 10,000 women a year are being treated. I think well see gene-therapy innovations in the years ahead. In addition, there are now many regional therapies to treat tumors with heat, cold or microwaves.
