Type2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) is a metabolic disease with high morbidity. 4D Flow MRI is an advanced technique which could provide visualization and quantification of blood flow. In the study, we identified the reproducibility of the processing and measuring procedure of abdominal 4D Flow data and discovered the significant hemodynamic differences in the affected vessels between T2DM patients and controls using 4D Flow MRI. The differences indicated the systematic hemodynamic changes caused by the disease and hinted 4D Flow MRI could offer more help in the evaluation and better understanding of the disease.
