How is a stone detected?
When children experience the above symptoms, urine is tested in the lab. Presence of excess red cells or white cells; and sometimes presence of crystals in the urine suggests urinary stone disease.
Ultrasound scan helps to find out whether there is a stone. It also provides information about their position, size and number. In addition special tests like IVP (intra-venous pyelogram) X-Ray, or CT (computer tomography) scan may be required.
