[IP] 24 hr urine collection vs spot collection

I asked Dr. Lemley at Stanford about 24hour vs spot collection and he 

"...the spot is used because 24 hour collections are often incomplete 
(giving a false sense of precision) and spot collections have good 
correlation with 24 hour values, just easier to do. This works for 
things like proteinuria, but not creatinine clearances."
