  1. AH, asymptomatic hyperuricemia group; GA, gouty arthritis group. The AH and GA groups are the subgroups of the HU group. The 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 AH and GA groups; t2/p2, the comparison of medulla between the AH and GA groups; p < 0.05 was considered significant
