(QSM) MRI-based Quantitative Susceptibility Mapping of Hepatic Iron Overload

The PI of this project was:

This project was funded by: NIH

The term of this project was: November 2020 to March 2022

The number of subjects scanned during this project was: 40

The overall goal of this project is to develop and validate a novel technique for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)-based Quantitative Susceptibility Mapping (QSM) of the abdomen, for non-invasive assessment of liver iron deposition. In this work, the study team will develop and optimize advanced data acquisition and image reconstruction methods to enable QSM of the abdomen. Further, the study team will determine the accuracy, repeatability, and reproducibility of abdominal QSM for iron quantification in patients with liver iron overload.
