The objective of this study was to investigate whether arterial spin labeling (ASL) MRI in rat kidneys can be sensitive to pharmacologically induced vasodilation and vasoconstriction. The preliminary results demonstrated the sensitivity of ASL to changes in renal cortical perfusion and showed the estimates to be reproducible (with adenosine) and cumulative (with L-NAME).
