Abstract

The hemoglobinopathies are a group of genetic disorders with a broad spectrum of clinical manifestations and radiologic findings. The imaging of pediatric hemoglobinopathies, which is influenced by concomitant hemosiderosis and the sequela of chelation therapy, has evolved over the years along with ever-improving technology. This article reviews and illustrates the most common radiographic and cross-sectional imaging findings of the 2 best known and clinically relevant hemoglobinopathies in pediatric patients, sickle cell disease and β-thalassemia.
