Table 4 Correlation between serum ferritin, hepatic, and cardiac investigations of the studied group

From: MRI evaluation of hepatic and cardiac iron burden in pediatric thalassemia major patients: spectrum of findings by T2*

VariableSerum ferritin
r$pSIG
Cardiac T2*− 0.10.4NS
MIC0.20.1NS
Hepatic T2*− 0.40.02*S
LIC0.50.01*S
  1. NS not significant; S significant
  2. *Statistically significant (p ≤ 0.05)
  3. $Spearman correlation
  4. Both Hepatic T2* & LIC have p values <0.05 so both are statistically significant
