Our May 2011 podcast highlights work by Dr. Carlton Bates and his colleagues at the University of Pittsburgh and Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. Their manuscript entitled “Assessing vesicoureteral reflux in live inbred mice via ultrasound with microbubble contrast agent” is published in the May 2011 issue of AJP-Renal Physiology. Editor-in-Chief Thomas Kleyman and Associate Editor Lisa Satlin discuss this novel method of assessing vesicoureteral reflux in live mice with Dr. Bates.
