Comparative study of GFR calculation using single plasma technique and gamma camera based technique

2012-01-05 Shruti Jayaravi

To find out agreement between GFR values obtained with both single plasma method and camera method. By comparing of GFR values obtained with 2 methods, only average correlation is obtained, so the implementation of renal function by combining both is not possible. Consider large sample size may improve.
