Kidney Stone Test - Calculus (Stone) Analysis by Automated FTIR (Kidney (Renal) Calculus)

51+ booked in last 3 days


Kidney stones are small, hard deposits that form in the kidneys and can cause intense pain when they pass through the urinary tract.

Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) spectroscopy is a powerful analytical technique that can be used to determine the chemical composition of a sample by measuring the absorption or transmission of infrared light. In the case of kidney stones, FTIR spectroscopy can be used to analyze the composition of the stone and identify the types of minerals that are present.

Some of the minerals that are commonly found in kidney stones include calcium oxalate, calcium phosphate, uric acid, and struvite. Knowing the composition of the stone can help doctors determine the best course of treatment, as different types of stones require different treatments.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Calculus Analysis by automated FTIR (Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy) is a diagnostic test that is used to identify the chemical composition of a kidney (renal) calculus or stone. The test measures the infrared spectrum of the stone, which allows the identification of the chemical composition of the stone viz. calcium oxalate & phosphate, magnesium ammonium phosphate (struvite), uric acid, cystine and other components

  1. Identification of Kidney Calculi: Calculus analysis is essential in determining the type of kidney stone that is formed in the human body.
  2. Treatment Planning: Knowing the type of stone can guide the healthcare provider in deciding on the best course of treatment.
  3. Prevention of Kidney Stones: Understanding the composition of kidney stones can also help in preventing the formation of new stones. The healthcare provider can recommend lifestyle changes or medications to prevent the recurrence of kidney stones.

This test is recommended for individuals who experience symptoms of kidney stones, such as:

  • Severe pain in the back, lower abdomen, or groin
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Blood in the urine
  • Frequent urge to urinate
  • Painful urination
  • Fever and chills

The test requires a small sample of the kidney stone, which is typically collected by the urologist or a trained medical professional during a routine medical examination.

If a Calculus (Stone) Analysis by automated FTIR (Kidney (Renal) calculus) test has been ordered, there are several other laboratory tests that may also be ordered to help diagnose and manage the condition:

  1. Urinalysis: This test can detect abnormalities in the urine, such as the presence of blood, protein, or infection, which may indicate the presence of kidney stones.
  2. Complete blood count (CBC): It can help detect infection or inflammation.
  3. Electrolyte panel: It can help detect dehydration or imbalances that may contribute to the formation of kidney stones.
  4. Serum creatinine: If the level is high, it may indicate that the kidney stone is causing damage to the kidney.
  5. 24-hour urine collection: This test can help identify the type of kidney stone and determine the underlying cause.
