Nowadays renal imaging using MRI is crucial but not
available to many institutions because until now it
relied in high-end systems working at high or ultra high
field strengths. As an alternative, a low-field portable
MR-system which can achieve similar resolutions like a
small animal system can provide such images. This work
presents initial results of contrast optimization of a
rodent kidney with a portable system at 0.5 T.
