PURPOSE To test the hypothesis that fractional kidney hypoxia, measured by using blood oxygen level-dependent (BOLD) magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, correlates with renal blood flow (RBF), tissue perfusion, and glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in patients with atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis (RAS) better than regionally selected region of interest… CONTINUE READING
