Although the procedures and methods employed in this laboratory are generally understood and well documented, a detailed, comprehensive explanation of our "integrated analysis" approach may be found in our chapter, "Analysis of Urinary Calculi" found in the book "Stones", edited by R.A. Roth and B. Finlayson. Additional information may be found in various publications also authored and/or co-authored by members of our staff as listed below:
