Optimization of Liver Iron Load Assessment by Pixel-Based T2* MRI in Thalassemic Patients

Abstract

Purpose: To improve liver iron load assessment by investigating the precision of different approaches of T2 Measurement. Background: Iron overload is a major problem in the treatment of thalassemic patients. Liver iron concentration (LIC) is an important index toward the management of body iron load. The accuracy of iron load estimation may suffer from the… (More)
