Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a highly lethal complication of sepsis that is frequently asymptomatic with versatile physiological alterations. As diet has gain recognition in the regulation of immune response, we aim to investigate the dietary impact on the course and outcome of sepsis by multiparametric MRI using perfusion, as well as T1 and T2 relaxation time. Cortical T1 and T2 relaxation time was found to differ significantly in animals having received protein-rich diet compared to healthy controls. By combining the cortical T2 relaxation time with perfusion, additional information could be gained, which allowed to distinguish between non-survivors and survivors.
