Ischemic acute kidney injury (AKI) is relatively common among hospitalized patients with high morbidity and mortality.Imaging examination is rarely utilized as the limited diagnostic value for AKI. Intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM) MRI is a novel and noninvasive imaging method to provide functional data and is sensitive for detecting in vivo tissue injury as AKI. We herein test if the IVIM is a potential tools for the detection and monitoring of reperfusion-related injury on an ischemic AKI model.
