The field of renal MRI has undergone significant developments over the last decade. However, the lack of standardisation of acquisition and analysis methods remains an important barrier to clinical translation. We present a consensus project initiated through the Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) Action PARENCHIMA whereby a group of renal MRI experts employed a Delphi-based approach to develop technical recommendations for renal T1 and T2 mapping, arterial spin labelling, diffusion-weighted imaging and blood oxygenation level-dependent MRI. These will promote standardisation of renal MRI protocols and thus facilitate clinical translation and comparison of data across sites.
