In this study, we explore the quantitative T1 and R2* mapping in theclassification on renal function in chronic kidney disease (CKD) . 146 CKD patients and 26 healthy volunteers(HVs)underwent T1 mapping and renal BOLD-MRI for R2* mapping. All CKD cases were divided into two groups according to the estimated glomerular filtration (eGFR):mild renal impairment group and moderate to severe group.Clincal information were collected.Compared with HVs,the T1 and R2* values of renal cortex were significantly higher and were well correlated with renal function.Therefore,T1 mapping and BOLD-MRI derived R2* mapping might provide an effective method in assessing renal function.
