Alternate Names : Bladder Calculi
How is the condition diagnosed?
Bladder stones can be detected using various special X-ray tests. Cystoscopy
may also be performed to make a diagnosis. This procedure involves inserting a
special, thin tube called a cystoscope through the urethra. The urethra is the
tube that carries urine from the bladder to the outside of the body. The
cystoscope has a light and camera on the end of it and can be advanced into the
bladder. This allows a doctor to see the inside of the bladder.
