Core Tip The mortality of thalassemia major (TM) patients due to iron overload cardiomyopathy is still high even though it can be prevented with effective chelation. The role of reliable methods to determine cardiac iron status is very important in order to give a timely effective treatment. This review article provides a comprehensive summary and discussion of various iron assessment methods as well as their existing controversy for use from both basic and clinical reports that have been proposed or used to directly or indirectly determine the cardiac iron status in TM.
