Caption: Kidney stone, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). Kidney stones are usually formed by the precipitation of the mineral salt calcium oxalate from the urine. The resulting hard, round stones (calculi) may cause severe pain, especially as they pass down the urinary tract. This is a relatively small kidney stone. Large stones may need to be surgically removed or broken down using ultrasound therapy. Magnification: x50 when printed at 10 centimetres across.
