Methods and Materials

This was a prospective study of 612 patients who were scheduled for contrast enhanced computed tomography. Whole blood capillary and venous samples were collected and measured with StatSensor® Creatinine and compared to a venous blood sample measured by the central laboratory method (reference method)  Estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) was calculated by the Cockcroft-Gault equation. Bland-Altman plots were used for the evaluation of measurement agreement. An eGFR of 60, 45 and 30 ml/min/1.73m² was chosen to distinguish between normal and abnormal renal function, respectively.
