calculated kidney glomerular podocyte measurement +  
calculated kidney glomerulus count +  
glomerular filtering surface area to glomerular volume ratio 
kidney glomerular density 
The number of glomeruli per unit area of kidney. Based on stereological principles, the number of glomeruli per unit area of kidney equals the number of glomeruli per unit volume of kidney. Glomeruli are the tufts of capillaries each situated within a Bowman's capsule at the end of a renal tubule in the vertebrate kidney that filter waste products from the blood and thus initiate urine formation.
