The major problems in renal DCE MRI are, like in the entire field of abdominal imaging, motion artifacts that primarily arise from the patients respiration. Here, we present an approach utilizing Blade for DCE-MRI of the human kidney to suppress motion while keeping critical parameters like temporal and spatial resolution within acceptable limits.
