Case 1: Secondary iron overload cardiomyopathy with dilated phenotype in a transfusion-dependent patient

Cine 4CH: Dilated LV with mild impaired systolic function and dilated LA. Minor pericardial effusion.

T2* contours: ROIs are placed in the ventricular septum (A) and the liver (B).

T2* calculation: Graphs of the relaxation of T2* values over time to compute T2* values of myocardium (A) and liver (B). T2* of the ventricular septum was 16.5ms consistent with mild myocardial iron overload and intermediate risk of developing heart failure, T2* of liver was 2.1ms consistent with severe iron overload of the liver.
