Correlation of sonographic parameters with renal function in patients with newly diagnosed chronic kidney disease

Aborishi Garg, Anupam Jhobta, Sumala Kapila, Devesha Rathour

Abstract: Aims: To correlate sonographic renal parameters (mean renal cortical thickness, length and volume) with renal functions in patients with newly diagnosed chronic kidney disease. To predict the best renal parameter correlating with renal functions in patients with newly diagnosed chronic kidney disease. Material and methods: A hospital-based prospective cross-sectional study was conducted in the Department of Radiodiagnosis, Indira Gandhi Medical College and Hospital, Shimla, in 78 adults with newly diagnosed chronic kidney disease visiting the hospital from December 2019 to November 2020. Results: A statistically significant positive correlation was found between eGFR and mean renal length, mean renal cortical thickness, and mean renal volume (p <0.001).The strongest correlation was shown between mean renal volume and eGFR (r = 0.90, r2 = 0.82; p-value <0.001). Conclusions: Renal volume and cortical thickness should be considered along with traditional renal parameters.
