Difficulty in clinical laboratory reports interpretation frequently lies in the elevated number of parameters (clinical tests and calculated values) that are displayed. Reports for automated urinary biochemistry are a good example of this situation.

In order to make easier interpretations, in our lab we decided to divide urinary laboratory reports into three physiological parts based on the renal location where filtration, reabsorption or secretion from each analyte are mainly performed, achieving a complete functional evaluation.
