We developed and evaluated the dual-tuned proton/sodium
MRI technique of the kidney. The new technique was
applied to sodium quantification to access the renal
function in transplanted kidney. The renal sodium
concentration and cortico-medullary sodium concentration
of transplanted kidneys were lower than those of the
healthy native kidneys.
