abstract

  • Reticuloendothelial system iron deposition present in follow-up MR imaging of pediatric solid and hematologic malignant lesions reflected the intensity of the chemotherapeutic regimen, the degree of myeloid suppression, and the resultant transfusional requirements. Such iron deposition appeared to have no effect on cardiac, liver, or pancreatic function.
