An accurate assessment of body iron accumulation is essential for the diagnosis and therapy of iron overload in diseases such as thalassemia or hemochromatosis. Magnetic iron detector susceptometry and MRI are noninvasive techniques capable of detecting iron overload in the liver. Although the transverse relaxation rate measured by MRI can be correlated(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of our prospective monocentric work was to determine the diagnostic value of real-time elastography (RTE) in the assessment of liver fibrosis in patients with iron overload, using transient elastography (TE) as reference standard. METHODS Sixty-seven consecutive patients with MRI detectable iron overload (T2*<6.3 ms) were enrolled.(More)
