Figure 11

Graphs showing receiver-operating characteristics (ROC) curve analysis to determine a threshold of liver to muscle SI ratio suitable for differentiating patients with low to medium (1-2 pts in Scheuer's grading scale) and high (3-4 pts in Scheuer's grading scale) hepatic iron overload using gradient echo MR sequence. The area under the curve corresponds to accuracy of this method. The sensitivity of this method for the threshold of liver to muscle SI ratio - 0.645 is 89%.
