Quantitative measurement of renal oxygen metabolism level is of central importance in understanding and treating renal diseases and renal metabolic rate of oxygen (RMRO2) can provide a valid criterion for evaluation the renal tissue oxygen metabolism level under both normal and disease states. According to the Fick principle of arteriovenous oxygen difference, the RMRO2 can be estimated by using a qBOLD and ASL technique. In this study, we will demonstrate the ability to obtain absolute quantitative RMRO2 noninvasively in normal and unilateral renal artery stenosis rabbits.
