Liver Biopsy vs SQUID
« on: January 01, 2007, 11:16:30 PM »
Hi, how are your holiday? :party

I want to tell you a story about my doct.  After MID exam (experimentl), that find a LIC high (1900mcg/g), she decided for a biopsy... she don't know very well a SQUID.

The next week, I phone to a hospital with SQUID and ask about it and about an appointment.
After many telephone calls to my doct and Squid center, She decide for this. I'm happy because i don't make a biopsy, but I ungry because she don't know :mad

good day to all  :bighug

and sorry for my english, but i'm tired and I have sleep  :offtobed

Thanks for info, but I have just an appointment to Hospital S.Anna in Torino (http://www.talassemicitorino.it/pagina.asp?sezione=59)

I complained myself of the fact that the doctor wanted to make the biopsy

Hi Vincenzo,

The squid test will give a far more accurate view of your liver iron concentrations than a biopsy will, and also won't involve any needles or risk. Let us know what the results are.
Andy

All we are saying is give thals a chance.

SQUID: Superconductive Quantum Interference Device

It's a non invasive method (without making a biopsy) to mesure iron quantity  in liver comparable to an MRI.
For more infos have a look to the following link:
