Abstract

Ultrasonographically measured renal cortical echogenicity (RCE) is known to increase in chronic kidney disease (CKD) and of value in predicting the degree of renal function impairment. Renal function is routinely assessed by serum creatinine levels (Scr) and estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). The aim of the study was to evaluate the association of RCE with Scr and eGFR in CKD subjects.
