Professor Paul Hockings, Senior Imaging Director at Antaros Medical, has contributed to the PARENCHIMA consensus paper “Consensus-Based Technical Recommendations for Clinical Translation of Renal Phase Contrast MRI”.
Phase contrast Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is emerging as an important technique to quantify kidney health. The technique provides a non-invasive way to measure single kidney renal artery blood flow and related hemodynamic parameters. These measurements show potential to support diagnosis and monitoring of renal diseases. The PARENCHIMA network is working to promote standardisation of renal blood flow measurements and facilitate the comparability of results across MRI scanners in the clinical setting and multicentre trials.
“Honoured to work with a great team of scientists to create consensus around kidney MRI methods important both for patient management and clinical research”
