  • Can single-kidney glomerular filtration rate be determined with contrast-enhanced CT? Radiology Sommer, F. G. 2007; 242 (2): 325-326


    Daghini et al used a pig model to estimate single-kidney GFR with dynamic contrast-enhanced CT scanning. Three techniques were evaluated, two of which (the modified Patlak method and the gamma variate model) yielded GFR estimates that correlated significantly with determinations made by using standard inulin clearance techniques. The findings hold promise that noninvasive in vivo assessment of single-kidney renal function may be achieved in patients.
