RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES Alterations in whole kidney, cortical, and medullary perfusion and volume play a pivotal role in various physiologic and pathophysiologic processes. Electron-beam computed tomography (EBCT) provides accurate measurements of these traits in animals, but their reproducibility in humans has not been established. METHODS Perfusion, volume, and flow measurements were obtained by EBCT in eight healthy human volunteers under controlled conditions on two consecutive days… CONTINUE READING
