Test Webinar

Background

In patients with Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD) kidney size is a strong predictor of disease progression before eGFR begins to decline1.  Identifying a total kidney volume (TKV) greater than expected for your patient’s age can provide an early and reliable marker for rapid disease progression which is an important step in management to delay further kidney damage1,2.

Did You Know?

  • A one-time kidney size measurement can assess the rate of progression of ADPKD and predict the future decline of kidney function3.
Why Attend This Webinar?
  • For the first time on NephU we are bringing together a Nephrologist and Radiologist to discuss breaking down barriers encountered with TKV orders.
What You Will Learn
  • Review the strengths and limitations of different imaging modalities Nephrologists can order to obtain a TKV.
  • Review different methods Radiologists have available to calculate TKV.
  • Discuss methods to break down communication barriers between the Nephrologist and Radiologist.
