glomerular filtering surface area to glomerular volume ratio 
This is a calculated value estimated from the glomerular filtering surface area of the peripheral capillary wall per unit glomerular volume. It is based on the proportion of the peripheral capillary basement membrane in contact with epithelial podocytes, as determined by microscopic measurements.
