Figure 1. Cortical stiffness measurement by point shear wave elastography in patients with stages I–V diabetic kidney disease. (a) In control subjects; normal cortical stiffness measurement of 7.05 ± 1.62 kPa; (b) In stage I diabetic kidney disease: normal or mild increased renal CS measurement of 8.07 ± 4.43 kPa (c) In stage II diabetic kidney disease: mildly increased renal cortical stiffness measurement of 8.27 ± 3.09 kPa (d) In stage III diabetic kidney disease: moderately increased renal CS measurement of 8.27 ± 3.09 kPa (e) In stage IV diabetic kidney disease: severely increased renal CS measurement of 16.51 ± 17.84 kPa (f) In stage V DKD: more severe increased renal CS measurement of 25.27 ± 8.67 kPa
