Iron quantification has been assessed through the development of magnetic resonance sequences. The purpose is to improve the existing MRI iron protocols to better diagnose the degree of hemochromatosis. Five volunteers with healthy livers underwent four protocols for the quantification of iron overloads concentration (IOC). The results have demonstrated that existing clinical protocols could be improved to provide spatial distribution of iron within one slice and all over the entire liver volume. IDEAL-IQ® could be the best protocol to have IOC volume representation with a short time of acquisition and standard deviation values associated to mean IOC data.
