To date, non-invasive methods to detect kidney malignancies and mild tumors remain a challenge. The purpose of this study was to establish the proper imaging protocol to determine kidney stiffness and its spatial distribution within the various kidney compartments such as the renal sinus, medulla, and cortex. Here, we have used magnetic resonance elastography (MRE) along with coronal oblique acquisition to simultaneously measure kidney stiffness in comparison with other tissues including the liver, spleen, and psoas.
