Chronic kidney disease (CKD), which has shown increased incidence gradually, is prevalent worldwide and occurs in conjunction with cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Purpose of this study is to evaluate the value of quantitative T1 and R2* mapping in diagnosis of CKD. Results showed that renal cortex R2* and T1 values can be used to distinguish mild CKD from healthy volunteers, and the combination of them can improve the diagnostic efficiency. Cortex R2*, cortex T1, and medulla T1 values can be used to distinguish mild from severe CKD, and the diagnostic efficiency was also significantly improved by using their combination.
