A New Method for Quantitative Wet-Chemical Analysis of Urinary Calculi and the Principles for Calculation of Results and Mass Recovery by an Algorithm
Recently, we described a new method for the quantitative wet-chemical analysis of urinary calculi1. This method is capable of analyzing all common constituents even in very small calculi (1 mg). Since algorithmic analysis is a powerful system for monitoring and understanding of information in medical evaluation2, we wrote an algorithm to facilitate the interpretation of the analytical data. The algorithm transforms the individual analytes to constituents found in renal stones3(e.g. calcium oxalate, calcium hydrogen phosphate, apatite). In this paper our wet-chemical analysis and algorithm are presented briefly.
