To demonstrate that assessment of cardiac iron burden by T2* imaging is feasible, reproducible, and reliable at 3T. With 3T MRI scanners increasingly used in clinical settings, this study may lay a foundation for further MRI development of quantitative markers for noninvasive cardiac iron overloaded assessment at higher fields. Though cardiac T2* measurement at 3T seemed not to offer any greater advantages than 1.5T at present, it is more useful for some hospitals having only 3T scanner.
