Scottsdale, Arizona 85259


Purpose:

This is a pilot study to investigate whether contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) may help evaluate segmental differences in renal perfusion better than Doppler Ultrasound and thus help direct the biopsy to the most abnormal part of the renal cortex. This should maximize detection and increase the odds of demonstrating the true grade/severity of the histopathological abnormality.


Criteria:

Inclusion - Ability to provide informed consent - Male and female >18 years - Patients undergoing renal transplant ultrasound-guided percutaneous biopsy within 24 months post transplant including patients undergoing biopsy to evaluate a recent rise in serum creatinine so called for cause biopsies and patients undergoing routine protocol (surveillance) biopsies without other evident of renal dysfunction Exclusion: - Pregnant women or women who are nursing an infant are not able to participate in this study - Known patent forearm ovale (PFO) - Significant heart disease
