Evaluation of Renal Blood Flow Using Contrast Enhanced Ultrasound for Differential Diagnosis of Acute Kidney Injury in Cirrhotic Patients: A Pilot Study

Hepatorenal syndrome (HRS) is a common cause of acute kidney injury (AKI) in cirrhotic patients and has a one month survival rate of 50% and a 3 month survival rate of 20%. The leading theory behind HRS is selective vasoconstriction of renal vascu...
