BACKGROUND To evaluate the clinical usefulness of estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) divided by functional renal volume (FRV) measured by three-dimensional image reconstruction (eGFR/FRV) for the prediction of functional outcomes after nephrectomy. METHODS Eighty-three patients who underwent nephrectomy were enrolled. The FRV of each patient was(More)
