raman spectroscopy

Analysis of urinary stone composition provides basic information concerning treatment and metaphylaxis of urolithiasis. Common techniques for composition analysis include chemical analysis, infrared spectroscopy and x-ray diffraction. These techniques afford complex sample preparation and costly laboratory equipment. Raman spectroscopy has been shown to be able to precisely identify the different components of urinary stones. Fibre-coupled Raman spectrometers might offer possibilities for the development of an easy to use tool for intraoperative in-vivo or ex-vivo stone analysis.
