Palette Life Sciences

In this episode of The PedSpace, Dr. Christopher Cooper explores the inherent flaws in the reflux grading system, which has long been the accepted keystone in determining vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) management. Dr. Cooper explains the limitations of the grading system proposes possible solutions.

Dr. Cooper's research focuses on the etiology, diagnosis and treatment of fetal genitourinary anomalies and pediatric bladder dysfunction. Over the last several decades, his research studies have concentrated on the decision making process for treating children with VUR. Dr. Cooper and his colleagues have developed several computational models to predict VUR outcome in order to provide more individualized management of patients with VUR.
