The purpose of this study was to develop a simpler method to measure severely reduced glomerular filtration rate (GFR) for patients with a GFR below 30 mL/min. The GFR was measured in 24 patients using both the 51Cr EDTA slope-intercept method (the conventional method) and 99mTc-DTPA with our proposed simpler GFRn method. The correlation coefficient was 0.92 between the 2 methods, with a slope of 0.97 and an intercept of 2 mL/min. Our simplified method for measuring GFR is accurate for mostpmid:11001500 fatcat:cduaoove2fhrpmjauna2j4llzq
