This study explores the feasibility of measuring magnetisation transfer in both the liver and kidney through acquisition of a full z-spectrum. In this study we developed a protocol to reduce artefacts from respiration and blood flow pulsatility and measured relative amounts of MT in both the liver and kidney medulla by modelling MT with a super-Lorentzian lineshape and fitting to the acquired spectrum. This will be relevant in monitoring fibrosis in abdominal organs.
