Contrast medium-induced nephrotoxicity risk assessment in adult inpatients: a comparison of serum creatinine level- and estimated glomerular filtration rate-based screening methods.

Abstract

PURPOSE To compare serum creatinine (SCr) level- and estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR)-based screening methods for identifying adult inpatients at risk for contrast medium-induced nephrotoxicity (CIN). MATERIALS AND METHODS Institutional review board approval was obtained; informed consent was waived for this HIPAA-compliant retrospective study… (More)
