Measurements of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) are frequently interpreted assuming a linear variation with age. Nonlinear relationships may give a better representation of the changes associated with normal ageing. This was a retrospective study of 904 subjects (468 women, 436 men; age range 18–84 years) undergoing assessment as prospective living kidney(More)
The aim of this study was to examine the usefulness of three GFR-estimating equations (eGFR) compared with measured GFR (mGFR) in potential living kidney donors. We compared the performance of the MDRD, CKD-Epi and Cockcroft–Gault equations with mGFR measured using 51Cr-EDTA in 508 consecutive potential living kidney donors. Each equation was assessed for(More)
Radionuclide imaging employs radiolabelled tracers in the investigation of suspected cancer, subsequent staging, response assessment and the assessment of recurrence. Highly specific tracers, that target cellular receptors and metabolic pathways, are used in investigating patients with known or suspected cancers. Radionuclide imaging techniques have(More)
