Q: All of the following can be used in the diagnosis of haemochromatosis except

A) Serum ferritin
B) Liver biopsy
C) HFE (Human hemochromatosis protein)
E) Blood smear

Answer: E

 MRI is quickly emerging as a noninvasive alternative to accurately estimate iron deposition levels in major organs as liver, heart, joints, pituitary gland etc.

Other tests are well known for the diagnosis of haemochromatosis.

Preparation of blood smear does not help in the diagnosis of haemochromatosis.
