CIN Risk Calculator App
A new CIN Risk Calculator App is now available through the Apple and Android App Stores. Published by RenalGuard Solutions, this app is an easy-to-use clinical tool intended for use by healthcare professionals to help predict the risk of contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).
