The different LIC values given by this java applet are shown (-999
= not calculated) in order to check that the software select the
best one. Usually, in case of major overload the most sensitive
sequences underestimate the LIC. On the other hand, the precision
is more accurate with the most sensitive sequences in case of
The normal upper limit of LIC is 40µmol/g. A "slight"
overload, below 100µmol/g, is not important if the patient is
old. On the other hand, this type of overload must not be neglicted
in a young patient. Above 100µmol/g we can use the term of "moderate
overload" and above 200µmol/g we can consider that is an
"major overload", but it is not an "official"
