Value of abdominal susceptibility-weighted magnetic resonance imaging for quantitative assessment of hepatic iron deposition in patients with chronic hepatitis B: comparison with serum iron markers.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To assess hepatic iron deposition quantitatively in patients with chronic hepatitis B (HBV) infection, using abdominal susceptibility-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (SWI). METHODS Patients with HBV infection and healthy controls underwent abdominal SWI and were assessed for serum iron markers. Phase values were measured and five grades of… (More)
