The quantification of iron content is traditionally performed by R2* mapping, which is sensitive to imaging parameters and affected by large field inhomogeneity such as near the liver-lung interface. In this abstract, we propose the use of a breath-hold 3D spiral multi-echo flow compensated sequence combined with an adaptive fat-water separation method to obtain liver iron content based on magnetic susceptibility.
