With advances in RF coil engineering, RF shimming strategies and acquisition methods, ultra high field MRI technical development and translational research has been expanded from the human brain to the abdominal and pelvic organs. To facilitate MRI research on renal physiology and clinical studies of kidney diseases, we are developing multi-parametric renal MRI at 7T, combining the ASL based renal perfusion imaging with T1 and T2 imaging to measure tissue MRI properties and T2* imaging to evaluate oxygen level or bioavailability. Our efforts towards this multi-parametric protocol for assessing the kidneys at 7T are presented.
