T2*-weighted GRE image of (A) splenectomized and (B) non splenectomized diabetic β-thalassemia major patients: (A) T2*-weighted GRE image (TR/TE/FA 120/15/20) of 12 yr-old female splenectomized β-thalassemia major with newly diagnosed diabetes showing low-signal intensity in the liver and the pancreas suggesting severe iron overload. (B) T2*-weighted GRE image (TR/TE/FA 120/15/20) of 16 yr-old female non splenectomized diabetic β-thalassemia major patient showing low-signal intensity in the liver and the spleen and normal signal intensity in the pancreas (TR, repetition time; TE, echo time; FA, flip angle).
