The first two groups of paediatric patients enrolled at the DEEP-2 Albanian experimental site in Tirana (University Hospital Centre “Mother Teresa”) has performed the MRI scans as per DEEP-2 Study Protocol. Children have been accompanied by the Trial Medical Staff to Athens, where the radiology is equipped to provide an accurate measurement of liver/hearth iron concentration, while the Trial Management Team is on the job to properly setup the Albanian MRI facility, for both hepatic and cardiac MRI T2* scans.

This event represents an important step both for the study, with the recruitment of the first paediatric patients in Albania in a not-for-profit study, but also for the patients themselves, having the chance to be undergone to a diagnostic procedure, which is, today, deemed necessary from major European guidelines and not currently available in-house.
