Abstract

MR imaging has been optimized for the evaluation of a multitude of disease processes affecting the kidneys. A wide variety of noncontrast methods are available for the evaluation of both kidney structure and function, which are especially useful in clinical scenarios that obviate the use of intravenous contrast. Contrast-enhanced methods remain important, especially for tumor evaluation, and are used increasingly for functional analysis of quantitative biometrics, such as glomerular filtration rate and kidney blood flow.
