-enhancing area with vascularity. CEUS is also superior to color Doppler ultrasound in diagnosing renal infarction, because CEUS can detect slower flow in smaller blood vessels. Kidney abscesses can also be confirmed and followed up using CEUS [ 16 ]. Since contrast agents are not concentrated in the collecting system, CEUS assessment of kidney trauma cannot rule out pelvi-calyceal and ureteric injuries; therefore, CEUS may be better suited for limited injuries, or multiple solid organ traumas [ 17 ].
Renal Microvascular Perfusion Evaluation in Animal Models
patient’s medical and surgical history, current disease status, treatment progress, success or lack thereof and compliance with numerous medication regimes, are reviewed. The critical portion of the selection includes a current functional status assessment, the ability to tolerate multiple challenges of organ transplant surgery including that experienced during the post-operative period, and, most importantly, the prediction of outcome in both the immediate and long-term.
The degree of functional capacity impairment is a matter of continuous re-assessment and
