- Don’t Practice “Renalism” – A Discussion About Contrast Associated Acute Kidney Injury - #149
Drs. Jeremy Levin, Michal Radomski and Carrie Valdez discuss with Dr. Brad Dennis and Dr. Steven Weisbord contrast associated acute kidney injury – from the renal medulla to “renalism,” a discussion of clinical consequences, and much in between.
