We present a prospectively navigated renal BOLD sequence
for free breathing full 3D BOLD imaging of the kidney.
3D renal BOLD has several advantages over 2D single
slice imaging, including improved SNR, potential
correction of T2* errors caused by B0 inhomogeneity, and
less subjective sampling of cortex and medulla. Our
sequence obtains full 3D renal BOLD data at high spatial
resolution with reasonable imaging time.
