How Radiologic Technologists Impact the Diagnosis & Prognosis of Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD)


Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD), an inherited progressive kidney disease, is the fourth leading cause of kidney failure in the US. ADPKD has a spectrum of clinical and imaging features that have direct prognostic implications1. Total kidney volume (TKV), adjusted for height and age, has been shown to be the best predictor of kidney function decline; this forms the basis for the Mayo Clinic Imaging Classification (MCIC) of the severity grade of ADPKD1. Radiology’s central role in ADPKD is to aid in the imaging-based diagnosis, prognostication, and monitoring for disease progression1.

Did You Know?
  • Renal ultrasound is considered the first-line modality for the initial assessment of the kidneys1
  • Follow-up studies have shown that height-adjusted TKV is correlated with a future decline in eGFR in patients with typical ADPKD1
  • Patients with ADPKD and MCIC 1C, 1D, or 1E are considered high risk for progression to ESKD1
Why Attend This Webinar?
  • Join us for this webinar to learn more about the role that radiologic technologists play in the diagnosis and prognosis of Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD)
What You Will Learn  
  • The importance of TKV in disease prognosis in ADPKD
  • The different imaging modalities for measuring TKV
