Nephrotoxicity - Surveillance

Surveillance

Nephrotoxicity is usually monitored through a simple blood test. A decreased creatinine clearance indicates poor renal function. Normal creatinine clearance levels are between 80 - 120 μmol/L. In interventional radiology, a patients' creatinine clearance levels are all checked prior to a procedure. Should an elevated creatinine clearance level be found, a special contrast medium or radiocontrast is used which is less harmful for the patient.

Serum creatinine is another measure of renal function, which may be more useful clinically when dealing with patients with early kidney disease.
