Advantages and controversies in the era of intrarenal volumetry

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Ultrasound is the preferred imaging modality in nephrology. In many kidney diseases, however, more accurate methods are needed to distinguish between relevant intrarenal structures. MRI could be a solution, although the use of MRI contrast has caused severe complications in some cases, and invasive kidney biopsies may follow, even though such small specimens traditionally provide inaccurate quantitative data. We evaluated the usefulness of MRI volumetry and quantitative kidney biopsies to assess glomerular number and volume as well as cortical volume.
