To detect the changes of kidney diseases, magnetic resonance imaging(MRI) as a noninvasive approach has been proved to be more suitable for detecting and monitoring diabetic nephropathy(DN). Intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM) and blood oxygenation level dependent (BOLD) MR imaging have been confirmed their high potential in detecting changes of renal function in patients with chronic renal diseases and transplanted kidneys.
