MR imaging is a promising noninvasive modality that can provide a comprehensive picture of renal anatomy and function in a single examination. The advantages of MR imaging are its high contrast and temporal resolution and lack of exposure to ionizing radiation. In the past few years, considerable progress has been made in development of methods of renal functional MR imaging and their applications in various diseases. This article reviews the key factors for acquisition and analysis of dynamic… CONTINUE READING
