Examples of patient monitoring
Fig. 1 and Fig. 2 show the follow-up, for two years, of the thalassemia major P002
and the hemochromatosis P003 patients. The background signal (b) has been calculated
every time according to the present anthropometric data of the patient. The x values are
the positions of the magnetic field axis relative to the center of the human body torso.
The iron overloads of the thalassemia (Fig 1.2) and hemochromatosis (Fig. 2.2)
patients are obtained from the differences between the measured (a) and the
calculated background (b) signals. The iron reductions of the hemochromatosis
patient are also estimated by the blood removed from the phlebotomy therapy (Fig.2.2).
The Fig.3 compares the iron reductions of all the hemochromatosis patients measured at least twice
by MID with the ones estimated by their removed blood.
