How are bladder stones diagnosed?

In addition to an examination by a healthcare provider, tests to diagnose bladder stones include:

  • Urine tests
  • X-ray
  • Ultrasonography (ultrasound)
  • Computed tomography (CT) scans, especially spiral CT scans which combine many images to provide better information
  • Cystoscopy (looking in the bladder with a small scope)
