Slide 1

August 2011

Welcome to Mayo Medical Laboratories' Hot Topics. These presentations provide short discussions of current topics and may be helpful to you in your practice.

Our presenter for this program is John C. Lieske, MD, Medical Director of the Mayo Clinic Renal Testing Laboratory in the Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology and Consultant in the Division of Nephrology and Hypertension at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. Dr. Lieske will describe renal function and chronic kidney disease. He will also discuss laboratory assessment of kidney function and describe a new immunoassay method to measure cystatin C which is practical and clinically useful to estimate glomerular filtration rate (GFR).

After viewing the Hot Topic, we invite you to participate in Beyond Hot Topic. This question and answer session will be posted online approximately 1 month after the Hot Topic presentation is posted. You can submit a question for Dr. Lieske using the information at the end of the presentation. Thank you Dr. Lieske.
