4D flow MRI permits to quantify non-invasively time-dependent velocity vector fields, but it demands long acquisition times. 2D-selective excitation allows to accelerate the acquisition by reducing th...
Intradialytic hypotension (IDH) is a prevalent yet serious complication of hemodialysis, associated with decreased quality of life, inadequate dialysis, vascular access thrombosis, global hypoperfusio...
The concept of dose of dialysis is relatively recent. It evaluates the adequacy of extrarenal clearance, in order to provide the best chances of survival to chronic dialysis patients. Although it pres...
Conflicting data continue to surround the optimal dialysis access for the elderly. Many propose that catheters are the best option for this population; others emphasize the creation of an arteriovenou...
Prior to the 1960s, chronic hemodialysis was limited by vascular access. Pioneers in dialysis technology created the first artificial kidney, chronic vascular access for hemodialysis, and peritoneal d...
The investigators aim to address this issue with novel image quantification methods using CZT-based SPECT, which is capable of dynamic data acquisition and therefore feasible for the quant...
The purpose of our study is to validate the accuracy of 4D PC flow method in quantification of thoracic and upper abdominal blood flow volumes in children. In this validation study, 4D PC ...
The study purpose is to determine whether two different hemodialysis blood flow rates each meet national dialysis standards for urea clearance. Urea is used as the primary marker of dialys...
The purpose of this study is to look at how the dose of dialysis is affected by the rate at which dialysate flows through the dialyzer. The dose of dialysis (Kt/V) will be determined by me...
Hemodialysis (HD) vascular access dysfunction is a huge clinical problem which results in significant morbidity amongst patients with End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), causing a severe econo...
Therapy for the insufficient cleansing of the BLOOD by the kidneys based on dialysis and including hemodialysis, PERITONEAL DIALYSIS, and HEMODIAFILTRATION.
The amount of PLASMA that perfuses the KIDNEYS per unit time, approximately 10% greater than effective renal plasma flow (RENAL PLASMA FLOW, EFFECTIVE). It should be differentiated from the RENAL BLOOD FLOW; (RBF), which refers to the total volume of BLOOD flowing through the renal vasculature, while the renal plasma flow refers to the rate of plasma flow (RPF).
Maintenance of blood flow to an organ despite obstruction of a principal vessel. Blood flow is maintained through small vessels.
Portable peritoneal dialysis using the continuous (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) presence of peritoneal dialysis solution in the peritoneal cavity except for periods of drainage and instillation of fresh solution.
The flow of BLOOD through or around an organ or region of the body.

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...
