Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is increasing in incidence and prevalence worldwide and early detection of CKD is a major challenge. MR elastography (MRE) is a noninvasive technique capable of quantifying the mechanical properties of tissue that has shown potential for assessing kidney diseases. MRE using 60-Hz and 90-Hz vibration frequencies can provide potential quantitative biomarkers for evaluating kidney function and biopsy score in CKD patients.
