Test ID: SSATR    
Supersaturation Profile, Random, Urine

Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Diagnosis and management of patients with renal lithiasis:

-Predicting the likely composition of the stone, in patients who have a radiopaque stone, for whom stone analysis is not available. This may help in designing a treatment program

-Identifying specific risk factors for stones formation using a random urine collection

-Monitoring the effectiveness of therapy by confirming that the crystallization potential has indeed decreased

-Evaluation of kidney excretion of acid and urine pH

Profile Information A profile is a group of laboratory tests that are ordered and performed together under a single Mayo Test ID. Profile information lists the test performed, inclusive of the test fee, when a profile is ordered and includes reporting names and individual availability.
