Multiparametric-MRI (mp-MRI) has shown promising results in the diagnosis of clinical disease. It provides us an approach to perform investigation from multiple dimension and avoids to ignore the worthwhile diagnosis information. Previous studies indicated that the perfusion and dispersion of renal parenchyma have been changed in diabetic mellitus (DM) without biochemical indicators of significant renal damage. However, the convergence and divergence of those diffusion and perfusion related MRI parameters in the evaluation of DM associated kidney damage is still unclear. To assess the renal functional changes in DM patients, three MRI modalities were applied in current study.
