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 � Spin Echo Echo Planar Imaging with reduced FOV for kidney.
