3 Tesla 23Na Magnetic Resonance Imaging During Acute Kidney Injury.

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES Sodium and proton magnetic resonance imaging (23Na/1H-MRI) have shown that muscle and skin can store Na+ without water. In chronic renal failure and in heart failure, Na+ mobilization occurs, but is variable depending on age, dialysis vintage, and other features. Na+ storage depots have not been studied in patients with acute kidney… CONTINUE READING
