The purposes of our study are (Phase 1) to validate the MR renographic measures of total and single kidney GFR in a population of patients with cirrhosis and (Phase 2) to apply MRR measures of GFR to determine a creatinine-based estimate of GFR for cirrhotic patients (akin to MDRD or Cockcroft-Gault).
