Current MRE method offers techniques for diagnosis for
large organs such as liver. Recent papers report that
MRE for kidney could be useful for assessment of renal
fibrosis. However, in the renal MRE, high spatial
resolution is needed because pathologic evaluation is
valid only on the renal cortex which is thin. This study
proposes high spatial resolution MRE using Single Shot �
