Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) was estimated in 32 healthy voluntary kidney donors (in the age range of 24-55 yrs) by conventional biochemical (creatinine clearance) and by scintigraphic methods. The former was found to be cumbersome and inaccurate. GFR obtained by the scintigraphic method (mean 94.14 plus 19.78 ml per min per 1.73 m sq) (mean plus ISD) was comparable with figures quoted in literature.
