Project description

Chronic kidney disease, a progressive disorder leading to an irreversible loss of kidney function, is common in  older dogs. Early diagnosis is of great importance in improving quality of life. The purpose is to evaluate noninvasive  contrast-enhanced ultrasound to detect early perfusion changes in dogs with primary kidney disease  and in dogs with spontaneous Cushing’s syndrome.
