DTI, BOLD and ASL MRI techniques have gained acceptance to evaluate different physiological aspects of the renal function both in research and clinics. However, there are not yet sufficient studies available investigating the accuracy and repeatability of renal MRI techniques. The main aim of this study was therefore to evaluate the reproducibility of DTI, BOLD MRI and ASL parameters derived from two scans and to investigate whether there are significant correlations between renal parameters obtained from these MR techniques in transplanted kidneys.
