Vascular occlusive disease poses a threat to kidney viability, but whether the events leading to injury and eventual fibrosis actually entail reduced oxygenation and regional tissue ischemia is unknown. Answering this question has been difficult because of the lack of an adequate method to assess tissue oxygenation in humans. BOLD (blood oxygen-level-dependent) magnetic resonance imaging detects changes in tissue deoxyhemoglobin during maneuvers that affect oxygen consumption, therefore this… CONTINUE READING
