To determine the relationship between MR relaxation times and the iron content of the spleens in patients with thalassemia, we measured these parameters at 0.19 and 1.18 T in 19 thalassemic spleen specimens in vitro. The correlation was best between iron content and the dependence between the interecho interval and the 1/T2 (T2 relaxation rate) at 1.18 T(r = .9361, p less than .001). No statistically significant correlation was found between T1 and iron content at either field strength. The… CONTINUE READING
