Estimating renal function is important for detecting and staging chronic kidney disease as well as for calculating drug dose adjustments. Methods to assess renal function include application of exogenous (e.g. iohexol) and endogenous markers (e.g. creatinine, cystatin C). In clinical practice, creatinine-based estimates are most frequently.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
