3D amide proton transfer weighted (APTw) MR imaging is a novelcontrast-agent-free MRI technique for detection of amide protons in mobile cellular proteins and peptides 1-3.On the other hand, 3D pseudo-continuous arterial spin labeling (3D-pCASL)is amethod to measure renal blood supply and hence potentially a metric for renal function. This study reveals a close association between the vascularity and concentration of mobile cellular proteins in kidney.
