Matrix-Mineral Configuration in Whewellite Kidney Stones: Ultrastructural Analysis
Methods of compositional and structural studies of urinary stones have evolved from visual inspection and bulk chemical analysis, through light microscopy and X-ray diffraction, to the present application of sophisticated imaging and analytical techniques. The newer approaches have provided an increasingly refined picture of the interactions of the components as a clue to the causative factors involved in the formation of urinary stones.
