Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) Study

A glomerular filtration rate study is a test that tells the doctor how well the kidneys are working. Several blood samples are taken and a few special pictures may be taken after a medicine is injected into a vein.

If pictures are taken, a measurement will be done on the computer to compare the amount of kidney function in the right and left kidneys.
