In this study MRI was performed in 104 CKD patients, 61 hypertensives and 42 controls and the MRI images were analyzed with the new twelve-layer concentric objects method (TLCO). Using this method, the study confirmed the hypothesis that renal cortical oxygenation is reduced in CKD, and that the level of cortical oxygenation correlates with CKD severity.
