Rochester, Minnesota 55905


Purpose:

The purpose of this study is to determine if a new MR pulse sequence is accurate in determining how much iron is in the liver.


Study summary:

Quantification of liver iron requires liver biopsy and histological assessment. New rapid MR techniques allow determination of liver relaxation times that can be altered with increasing iron deposition. The purpose of this study is to compare the results obtained with MRI to liver biopsy and iron quantification in patients undergoing liver biopsy in the setting of hemochromatosis.


Criteria:

Inclusion Criteria: - Undergoing liver biopsy for suspected or known hemochromatosis - Undergoing liver biopsy for living-related liver donation evaluation Exclusion Criteria: - Contraindication to MRI
