  1. HC, healthy control; HU, hyperuricemia group. ADC,D,D* and MD value are given as × 10− 3 mm2/s; The f and FA value are dimensionless; R2* value is given as s− 1; t1/p1,the comparison of cortex between the HC and HU groups; t2/p2, the comparison of medulla between the HC and HU groups; p < 0.05 was considered significant
