BACKGROUND Most dialysis patients receiving erythropoesis-stimulating agents (ESA) also receive parenteral iron supplementation. There are few data on the risk of hemosiderosis in this setting. METHODS We prospectively measured liver iron concentration by means of T1 and T2* contrast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) without gadolinium, in a cohort of 119(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Iron overload among hemodialysis patients was previously considered rare but is now an increasingly recognized clinical situation. We analyzed correlations between iron biomarkers and the liver iron concentration (LIC) measured by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and examined their diagnostic accuracy for iron overload. DESIGN,(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Iron overload used to be considered rare among hemodialysis patients after the advent of erythropoesis-stimulating agents, but recent MRI studies have challenged this view. The aim of this study, based on decision-tree learning and on MRI determination of hepatic iron content, was to identify a noxious pattern of parenteral iron(More)
