Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a powerful tool for the detection of ferromagnetic components. This property can be used for the early detection of pathologic conditions related to liver iron overload. Neonatal hemochromatosis and hemosiderosis are conditions associated with severe liver disease. Infections like parvovirus and cytomegalovirus, metabolic conditions and gestational allo-immune liver disease can produce neonatal hemochromatosis phenotype. Fetal iron overload can be detected early by using T<sub>2</sub>* multi-echo gradient sequence. There are only few studies reporting standard T<sub>2</sub>* values of the fetal liver at 1.5 T. The aim of this study is to evaluated the standard T<sub>2</sub>* values of the fetal liver using prenatal MRI with 3.0 T. Read More
