One of real-time MRI’s aims is to monitor fast dynamic processes. Here we explore the use of “ultrafast” SPEN MRI, as a candidate for monitoring in real time the injection of contrast material into a mouse at high fields. Thanks to SPEN's ability to yield quality images even in challenging environments and in zoomed regions, fast perfusion phenomena could be viewed in both or in a single mouse kidney.
