Various factors can affect blood and tissue levels of trace elements in patients with end-stage renal disease. There are a few studies showing hyperintensity of basal ganglia associated with manganese deposition in hemodialysis (HD) patients. The present study aimed to investigate the intensity changes as markers of manganese deposition in the basal ganglia and to demonstrate their association with blood manganese levels using ICP/MS technique in HD, peritoneal dialysis (PD), and renal transplant patients.
