Cystatin C: Its utility as an alternative for creatinine-based eGFR
Cystatin C is a protein used as a biomarker for kidney function. A cystatin C test may be ordered as an alternative to a serum creatinine or urine albumin test. Measurement of serum cystatin C is gaining a greater role in the estimation of kidney function, especially with growing scrutiny of the inclusion of race modifiers in the creatinine-based eGFR equation.

During this interactive webinar, a multidiscipline panel of experts will delve into the utility of the cystatin C test in diagnosing kidney disease. They will discuss:

• Epidemiological argument for measuring cystatin C

• Benefits of cystatin C related to diagnosis, risk classification, and racial bias

• Practical barriers to ordering the cystatin C test

• Illustrative case examples
