This study has been performed to show relative gain in SNR and reduced blurring caused due to T2 decay in multi-echo sequences in renal MR. The magnetization of spins was based on PSS design so as to increase the amplitude of later echoes to maximum. To validate the hypothesis In-Silico and In-vivo simulation have been performed in kspace on acquired renal MR images. The results showed the significant increase in SNR in the region of interest (ROI) relevant to renal anatomy proving the effectiveness of this approach for clinical diagnosis
