Equilibrium dialysis (ED) has been widely used for the measurement of the fraction of unbound drug (f) in plasma, but it suffers from the accuracy and reliability for low f values. To address this con...
We investigated the feasibility of renal duplex ultrasound in the identification of renal malperfusion in acute aortic dissection, and evaluated whether intervention for renal malperfusion improved ou...
We describe the feasibility and long-term outcomes of using femoral vein (FV) for arteriovenous fistula (AVF) and lower extremity bypass (LEB) creation.
Point of care ultrasound (POCUS) in the hands of the non-radiologist has seen a steady growth in popularity amongst emergency, intensive care and acute medical physicians. Increased accessibility to p...

Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
In medicine, dialysis is a process for removing waste and excess water from the blood, and is primarily used to provide an artificial replacement for lost kidney function in people with renal failure. Dialysis may be used for those with an acute disturba...
