Uncertainty over Serum Ferritin in Cancer Survivors
- 23 June 2017
There is increasing recognition that paediatric cancer survivors are at risk of transfusion-related iron overload caused by their intensive treatment regimes. The results of a recent study demonstrate problems with the current screening method (serum ferritin) for iron overload in this field. Resonance Health’s FerriScan® technology, the globally recognised gold standard for the assessment of iron overload, is ideally positioned as a reliable, non-invasive alternative.
TIF MEDIA RELEASE & CLINICAL ALERT
- 21 June 2017
The Thalassaemia International Federation (TIF) has released a Media Release and Clinical Alert to warn of the potential dangers of an unsafe MRI ‘T2*’ technique used widely for the assessment of iron overload and the critical need to use validated techniques such as FerriScan.

FerriScan® Results Are Not Confounded by Liver Fat
- 19 April 2017
Recent study results have demonstrated that FerriScan, the globally recognised gold standard for the measurement of liver iron concentration (LIC), is not confounded by the presence of liver steatosis. This places FerriScan at a distinct advantage to alternative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) LIC assessment techniques, such as liver T2*, whose results are impacted by the presence of fat due to the inherent nature of the technique.

Survey Results: Transfusional Iron Overload and Cancer Survivors
- 30 March 2017
Following the publication of several studies discussing the occurrence of transfusional iron overload in cancer survivors, Resonance Health asked specialist healthcare providers to complete a survey on clinical practice in monitoring and treating iron overload in this cohort. The survey response was excellent and as such is considered a valid snapshot of current practice.
