Kidney Stones - Diagnosis

This requires imaging of the urinary tract, which includes:

  • X-ray or ultrasound of the kidneys and bladder, or
  • Intravenous urogram (IVU) or computerised tomography (CT) scan

Additional urine and blood tests may be needed to exclude infection and impairment of kidney function.

You may be asked to collect urine for 24 hours to measure urine volume and the levels of chemicals in the urine. Your doctor will also ask about your medical history, occupation, and eating habits.
