to apply IVIM imaging to estimate blood oxygen saturation in kidneys with extraction of glomerular filtrate fraction by using fluid-attenuated
inversion recovery diffusion-weighted imaging (FLAIR DWI). A 3-compartment
model (renal tissue, blood and water) was considered for the estimation. Combination
of DWI and FLAIR DWI provided renal tissue T1. Images were acquired
with two TEs to provide blood T2 which allows for estimation of
blood oxygen saturation. Our model generated estimation
of glomerular filtrate fraction, blood R2 and blood oxygen
saturation. FLAIR DWI has a potential to estimate blood oxygen saturation with
extracting glomerular filtrates fractions in kidneys.
