Twelve patients underwent serial cardiac, cerebral and renal multiparametric 3T MRI scans before, during and after haemodialysis. During dialysis, there was a significant decline in cardiac and stroke index and myocardial strain, with increased diastolic dysfunction. This was accompanied by a reduction in blood flow to both the heart and brain. White matter T1 increased during dialysis suggesting fluid shifts increasing water content resulting in local oedema. Total kidney volume, renal cortex T1 and T2* all reduced during dialysis likely reflecting reduced renal blood volume and change in renal tissue water. These results highlight the acute multi-organ effects of dialysis.
