Academic/Research Interests

  • Dr. Koratala’s main academic interest is in studying kidney disease and hypertensive disorders in pregnancy. In women with moderate to severe kidney disease, the risk of pregnancy-related complications is much greater and the collaborative care and close monitoring by Obstetrician and Nephrologist is the key to improving outcomes. He is also interested in renal ultrasound and involved in developing ultrasound curriculum for Nephrology trainees. Another exciting part of his work is studying the role of non-traditional ultrasound parameters such as renal resistive indices in acute and chronic kidney disease.
