PURPOSE To assess the feasibility of quantifying functional renal volume with gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) angiography. MATERIALS AND METHODS Institutional review board approval was obtained, and all subjects gave informed consent. A contour-detection three-dimensional algorithm for determining renal volumes was developed. The method was validated in 18 cadaveric pig kidneys by measuring the water displacement caused by the kidneys. The kidney lengths and volumes in 19… CONTINUE READING
