Magnetic resonance imaging (RM) today represents a method non-invasive and accurate imaging to determine levels of iron in various tissues, even at the myocardial level, and it comes used as a monitoring and management method for thalassemic patients, so that they can recognize early those alterations that will then lead to the appearance of heart failure, or the so-called "cardiomyopathy from accumulation of iron".
