Abstract

Measurement of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is essential in the risk evaluation of potential kidney donors. The optimal method of measuring GFR involves using clearance techniques. However, clearance techniques are technically complex and time consuming. The goal of this study is to evaluate a different method of measuring GFR, one that retains the accuracy of a clearance technique and adds the convenience of a plasma creatinine measurement.
