BACKGROUND We previously validated a scoring system for abdominal/pelvic CT scans in patients with symptomatic encapsulating peritoneal sclerosis (EPS). CT scans of patients with symptomatic EPS were significantly different from control peritoneal dialysis (PD) or haemodialysis patient scans; scans performed before EPS was clinically evident were near normal in 9 of 13 patients. We have now investigated CT scanning as a screening modality in a larger group of patients on long-term PD. METHODS… CONTINUE READING
