Renal plasma flow (RPF) is the volume of blood plasma passing through the kidneys per minute; whereas renal blood flow (RBF) is the volume of blood flowing through the renal arteries per minute. Both RPF and RBF are measured in milliliters per minute (ml/min), and both are important measures of kidney function. High values indicate good kidney function, while low values indicate poor kidney function.
