GFR measurement methods

Glomerular filtration rate is still considered as the best way to assess global kidney function. However, there are several different methods to measure and estimate GFR. We will review all GFR measurement methods which can be considered as reference methods.

Discussion

We will discuss the different biomarkers and equations available for the clinical practice. Also, we will discuss how the choice of a GFR estimator can influence chronic kidney disease epidemiology and associated risks.
