Patients with acute kidney injury (AKI) undergo a large number of tests, many of which are of limited clinical value, reports a study in BMC Nephrology (5).The retrospective study included 5731 AKI episodes in 4903 adult inpatients at an academic medical center over 1 year. Rates of test performance and abnormal results were calculated for various urine, blood, radiologic, and pathology tests, including differences by AKI stage. Diagnostic yield was determined by manual review of electronic medical records.
