Although a hysterectomy is the most common treatment for relieving the symptoms attributable to uterine leiomyomas, uterine artery embolization (UAE) is now being used more frequently as an alternative to a hysterectomy. However, it is difficult to differentiate a leiomyoma from a leiomyosarcoma without performing a pathological examination. Reported herein ...
