The functional value of TurboFLASH MR imaging in the assessment of dynamic contrast enhancement and renal perfusion anomalies was evaluated in seven patients, who also underwent renal scintigraphy in baseline conditions. The basal renograms obtained from MAG-3 scintigraphy (mercapto acetyl triglycine, MAG3-S) and from Gd-DOTA-enhanced turboFLASH MRI were compared. After hydration, the protocol used consisted in breath-hold coronal turboFLASH acquisitions after IV bolus of Gd-DOTA (4 s every 20… CONTINUE READING
