Quantitative Estimation of Renal Function with Dynamic Contrast-Enhanced MRI Using a Modified Two-Compartment Model

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To establish a simple two-compartment model for glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and renal plasma flow (RPF) estimations by dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI). MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of eight New Zealand white rabbits were included in DCE-MRI. The two-compartment model was modified with the impulse residue… (More)
