Abstract

Diffuse signal changes in the liver on MRI often represent a depositional process with decreased signal when iron or copper is deposited or increased signal with fatty deposition. We present a 68y male with myelodysplasia requiring multiple blood transfusion, resulting in such signal changes.

Keywords
