Renal function, in nephrology, is an indication of the state of the kidney and its role in renal physiology. Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) describes the flow rate of filtered fluid through the kidney.
Normal GFR varies according to age, sex, and body size, and declines with age. Clinical practice guidelines (NICE Guidelines and The Renal Association - UK) recommend the MDRD Study equation to estimate GFR.
eGFR Calculator is a tool for Radiologists/ Radiographers and Medical Professionals.
Great user interface and easy to use!
And most important it's FREE!
---> Just enter the values of "age" and "serum cr" and choose "male" or "female" in the gender section and "black" or "other" in the race section.
*eGFR (estimated GFR) is calculated by the abbreviated MDRD equation: 186 x (Creat / 88.4)^-1.154 x (Age)^-0.203 x (0.742 if female) x (1.210 if black)
**The formula used in this calculator may not be accurate when used in children, elderly patients, specific ethnic groups, pregnant women, those with unusual muscle mass, body habitus, and weight (e.g. morbid obesity or amputees) and patients with a normal GFR.
