—Surface roughness is a crucial input for radar backscatter models. Roughness measurements of root mean-squared height (h rms) of the same surface can vary depending on the measuring instrument and how the data are processed. This letter addresses the error in h rms associated with instrument bias and instrument deployment issues such as number and length(More)
BACKGROUND Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease slowly progresses to end-stage renal disease and has no effective therapy. A pilot study suggested that the somatostatin analogue octreotide longacting release (LAR) could be nephroprotective in this context. We aimed to assess the effect of 3 years of octreotide-LAR treatment on kidney and cyst growth(More)
Trials failed to demonstrate protective effects of investigational treatments on glomerular filtration rate (GFR) reduction in Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD). To assess whether above findings were explained by unreliable GFR estimates, in this academic study we compared GFR values centrally measured by iohexol plasma clearance with(More)
