Nowadays renal imaging using MRI is crucial but not available to many institutions because until now it relied in high-end systems working at high or ultra high field strengths. As an alternative, a low-field portable MR-system which can achieve similar resolutions like a small animal system can provide such images. This work presents initial results of contrast optimization of a rodent kidney with a portable system at 0.5 T.
