FerriScan is the world's first regulated, non-invasive liver iron concentration test for people suffering from iron overload conditions. The test offers these people a safe, fast and most importantly accurate determination of their liver iron levels. FerriScan enables patients and clinicians to plan and monitor their treatment more effectively.

To see the Ferriscan Fact Sheet please go to http://www.thalassemiapatientsandfriends.com/index.php?topic=1677.0

No, SQUID is a different test that can also image heart iron. There are very few SQUID machines in the world. However, FerriScan works with exisiting MRI machines, thus making it far more widely available.

From  http://www.resonancehealth.com/rh_resonance--FAQ

Quote
   
FerriScan is a new technology for the non-invasive measurement of liver iron concentration (LIC). Advanced computer software, the result of extensive research and trials, is used to analyse data obtained through magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of a patient's liver to determine an accurate measurement of liver iron concentration.
FerriScan measures LIC in three easy steps:

1. An MRI scanner will produce a set of internal images of the abdominal cavity containg the liver.

2. The image data collected from the MRI scans is then sent electronically to the FerriScan Service Centre where it is analysed using the FerriScan technology.

3. Once the analysis is completed, the LIC result is sent to the MRI centre within 2 business days of receipt of data.

T2* is used to determine the amount of iron overload in the heart.

From http://www.thalassemia.org/sections.php?sec=2&tab=10&sub=204&

Quote
T2* is a time measurement that reflects iron content in tissue. The T2* measurement is obtained from images taken on a standard Magnetic Resonance Image (MRI) machine. The MRI machine uses a strong magnet and radio waves to image body issues. The MRI machine detects differences in magnetic properties of the body and converts these differences into pictures that physicians can use to diagnose various diseases. Iron overload causes changes in the magnetic properties of tissues, which causes the T2* values to become smaller. The T2* measurement of the heart is important because it has been found that patients with a cardiac T2* value less than 20 milliseconds (a millisecond is 1/1000 of a second) are at higher risk for heart problems related to iron overload than patients with T2* value greater than 20 milliseconds. ...
T2* is not routinely measured on cardiac MRI exams because it requires special imaging and analysis programs to interpret the results. However, this technology has now become available for all interested thalassemia major and intermedia patients as part of a research study by cardiologist John Wood at the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA)....
If you are a thalassemia patient or a parent of a child with thalassemia and are interested in having the T2* measurement, first get permission from your hematologist and then email info@cooleysanemia.org with the name of the patient, age, diagnosis, contact information and dates available to have testing done in Los Angeles. Interested parties can also call the Patient Services at 800-522-7222. Testing is available year round and appointments can be made according to the patient’s availability. Keep in mind that patients and their families must make their own travel and lodging arrangements.



Because of the cost it is not as widely available as FerriScan, which measures iron content in the liver.

Thank you! I thought the closest was Hamburg, but I was wrong: University Hospital Duesseldorf    Mooren Str 5    Duesseldorf         +49 277 877 7752      Unfortunately, is only the patient (I) interested in this.
