Diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW-MRI) and the associated method of intravoxel incoherent motion imaging (IVIM) are of increasing relevance in the clinical routine. The purpose of our study was to investigate the effects of partial nephrectomy in kidneys with solid renal masses on DW-MRI and IVIM-derived parameters. We were able to show that perfusion related IVIM parameters are highly sensitive to partial nephrectomy and are promising candidates to assess kidney functionality without the need for contrast agents.
