CONTRAST-ENHANCED ULTRASOUND STADY OF KIDNEYS IN PATIENTS WITH TYPE 2 DIABETES WITH THE POSSIBILITY OF A NEW DOSAGE OF THE CONTRAST-ENHANCED AGENT
Keywords:contrast-enhanced ultrasound, angionephrosclerosis, type 2 diabetes
Aim of the research.Тo evaluate the diagnostic efficacy of the contrast-enhanced ultrasound examination of kidneys in patients with type 2 diabetes with a dose of injected contrast agent – 1.0 ml.
Materials and methods. 15 patients with verified type 2 diabetes. The age of the examined patients was 3561 years. The average age is 48 ± 1.7 years. All patients underwent complex diagnostics, including: ultrasound examination of kidneys in B-mode with vascular diagnostics in Color Doppler mode. Also, all patients underwent contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) examination of kidneys. Then, CEUS of kidneys was carried out using an contrast-enhanced agent "SonoVue" at a dose of 2.5 ml (in accordance with the European guidelines for clinical practice on contrast-enhanced ultrasound examination) and at a dose of 1.0 ml.
Results. As a result of improved technique (1.0 ml of an contrast-enhanced agent intravenously) in patients with type 2 diabetes, the qualitative and quantitative indicators were identical, or slightly reduced and did not affect the interpretation of the result.
Conclusion. The improved CEUS technique with 1.0 ml of contrast agent showed the possibilities in diagnosing diabetic nephropathy in patients with type 2 diabetes.
