The paramagnetic magnetic resonance (MR) imaging contrast agent gadolinium diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid (DTPA) is freely filtered at the glomerulus and is neither secreted nor reabsorbed by the renal tubules. Fast MR imaging techniques, either gradient-echo or spin-echo, can be used to document the passage of Gd-DTPA through the renal tubules, as reflected by alteration in the MR signal intensity within the different anatomic regions of the kidney. Gradient-echo (repetition time of 35… CONTINUE READING
