Noninvasive Assessment of Renal Fibrosis with Magnetization Transfer MR Imaging: Validation and Evaluation in Murine Renal Artery Stenosis
Mayo Clinic researchers conducted a study to test the utility of magnetization transfer imaging in detecting and monitoring the progression of renal fibrosis in mice with unilateral renal artery stenosis. In the stenotic kidney, the median magnetization transfer ratio showed progressive increases from baseline to six weeks after surgery, which were accompanied by a progressive loss in renal volume, perfusion, blood flow, and oxygenation. Based on the results, magnetization transfer imaging was used successfully to measure and longitudinally monitor the progression of renal fibrosis in mice with unilateral renal artery stenosis. The study was published in Radiology.
