Abstract: Guidelines for measuring glomerular filtration rate (GFR) using Cr-EDTA require normalizing of GFR for body surface area (BSA) before applying the Bröchner-Mortensen (BM) correction. The guideline explicitly mentions the importance of performing BSA normalization before BM correction and that this is particularly important in children in whom the effects of BSA normalization are largest.
