Impact of malnutrition on health-related quality of life in persons receiving dialysis: a prospective study (2021)
Journal Article

Health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is severely impaired in persons receiving dialysis. Malnutrition has been associated with some measures of poor HRQoL in cross-sectional analyses in dialysis populations, but no studies have assessed the impact...

Contrast?enhanced ultrasound assessed renal microvascular perfusion may predict postoperative renal complications following colorectal surgery (2021)
Journal Article

Colorectal surgery is associated with an above?average mortality rate of ~15%. During surgery, maintenance of vital organ perfusion is essential in order to reduce postoperative mortality and morbidity, with renal perfusion of particular importance....

Multiparametric MRI assessment of renal structure and function in acute kidney injury and renal recovery (2021)
Journal Article

Background: Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) is associated with a marked increase in mortality as well as subsequent chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end stage kidney disease. We performed multiparametric MRI with the aim of identifying potential non-invasi...

Iterative Run-to-Run Learning Model to Derive Continuous Brachial Pressure Estimates from Arterial and Venous Lines During Dialysis Treatment (2020)
Journal Article

Objective: Non-invasive continuous blood pressure monitoring is not yet part of routine practice in renal dialysis units but could be a valuable tool in the detection and prevention of significant variations in patient blood pressure during treatment...

Skin autofluorescence and malnutrition as predictors of mortality in persons receiving dialysis: a prospective cohort study (2020)
Journal Article

Background Skin autofluorescence (SAF), which is a measure of accumulation of advanced glycation end‐products (AGE), and malnutrition are each associated with higher mortality in dialysis populations, although no studies have investigated these po...

Impact of Dietetic Intervention on Skin Autofluorescence and Nutritional Status in Persons Receiving Dialysis: A Proof of Principle Study (2020)
Journal Article

Objective: Advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) are uremic toxins that result from oxidative stress and food consumption. We have previously reported that markers of malnutrition are more important determinants of increased skin autofluorescence (S...

Quantitative assessment of renal structural and functional changes in chronic kidney disease using multi-parametric magnetic resonance imaging (2019)
Journal Article

BACKGROUND: Multi-parametric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) provides the potential for a more comprehensive non-invasive assessment of organ structure and function than individual MRI measures, but has not previously been comprehensively evaluated...
