2 Aims and objectives The quantification and monitoring of body iron burden play a pivotal role in the clinical management of patients affected by inherited hemoglobin disorders, including thalassemia, hereditary hemochromatosis and sickle cell disease. The total amount of iron deposited in the organs well correlates with serum ferritin levels (expressed in ng/ml); however, serum ferritin lacks of specificity, since it may be affected by other factors such as fever or inflammation. Liver iron content (LIC), expressed as mg Fe/g dry tissue, is considered a reliable biomarker of the total iron stored in the body [Angelucci 2000]; therefore, direct or indirect methods for measuring LIC are used as surrogates for assessing the whole-body iron burden. Currently, chemical analysis of percutaneous liver biopsy specimens remains the reference standard for the diagnosis and quantification of LIC, but its routine clinical application for purposes of screening, treatment monitoring, and epidemiologic studies is limited by the significant risk of bleeding, infection and sampling errors, due to the heterogeneous distribution of iron deposits throughout the liver [Butensky 2005]. In the last decade, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has become an effective alternative for the noninvasive assessment of liver iron overload [Wood 2011]. MRI is able to produce LIC estimates over the entire range of clinically relevant values. MRI quantifies iron indirectly, by detecting the paramagnetic effects of the interactions between iron, stored as ferritin and hemosiderin, and nearby hydrogen nuclei. MRI-based methods to provide estimates of LIC include signal intensity ratios, based on T2 or T2*-weighted imaging, and relaxometry, based on T2 or T2* relaxation times (or R2 and R2* relaxation rates). Relaxometry methods calculate T2 or T2* by fitting a decay model to the average signal intensity at various echo times (TEs); these methods have been proven to be more robust than signal intensity ratios. The St Pierre method is a T2-based technique marketed with the name of FerriScan TM [Figure 1]. It is an FDA-approved technique that is currently used as surrogate of liver biopsy in different clinical trials. The aim of this work was to compare the T2-derived LIC measurements (FerriScan TM ) with LIC values obtained by T2* relaxometry using three different commercial software programs.

4 Methods and materials This retrospective observational study was performed on 15 thalassemic patients undergoing MRI examinations under chelation therapy and about fifty FerriScan TM -T2 and T2* MRI examinations were performed and compared. Exams were done with a 1.5T General Electric Hdx scanner using an eightelement cardiac/torso coil. Breath-hold T2*-MRI measurements were performed and the whole liver was scanned employing a multi-echo gradient echo sequence. T2- MRI measurements were performed with a multislice single spin-echo pulse sequence according to the FerriScan TM protocol and the images acquired were sent via a secure electronic link to the FerriScan TM central for processing. The LICdw reports produced were considered as a reference standard. Three commercial software programs performing T2* relaxometry were used for the LIC estimation: Quanta Hematology (Camelot Biomedical Systems, Genoa, Italy) [Figure 2,3,4,5]; CMRTools (Cardiovascular Imaging Solutions, London, UK) [Figure 6]; FuncTool (General Electric Medical Systems, Milwaukee, WI) [Figure 7,8,9]. To perform a direct comparison with the average LICdw of the FerriScan TM report, a radiologist with 7 year experience in MRI (FP) selected the slice on multi-echo gradient images which was corresponding to the slice shown in the FerriScan TM report. Correlations among LICdw measurements were subjected to linear regression analysis and the regression coefficient R2 was used to evaluate the correlation between the techniques; the software were also compared using Bland-Altman plots.

13 Results The time evolution of liver iron content was analyzed and clinically discussed case-bycase for the patients which had at least one point outside the ±1 SD interval in the Bland- Altman plot. Although all T2* methods are in good agreement with the FerriScan TM results, the best accordance with LICdw deriving from FerriScan TM is reached by the measurement obtained from Quanta Hematology; the corresponding Bland-Altman analysis has mean of 0.1 mg/g and a standard deviation (SD) of 1.5 mg/g. Conclusion The good agreement observed between the T2* method and the goldstandard (FerriScan TM T2), makes suitable in our opinion the use of different commercial software for liver iron concentration monitoring in clinical routine. In our series of patients and measurements we observed two cases where FerriScan TM appeared to overestimate the LIC, particularly when the LIC had higher values. In these cases we don't have a biopsy to allow direct quantification of LIC but we consider that FerriScan TM could have overestimated the LIC because the decrease over time of the LIC showed by FerriScan TM was too large. In fact it is assumed that LIC decrease under chelation therapy should be approximately 3mg/g of LIC dry weight over 1 year of time. Personal information References 1.
