Abstract
Kidney or gall-bladder stones are solid accretions (crystals) of dissolved minerals in urine or bile juice found inside the kidneys or urethras and gall bladder, with varying size from as small as a grain of sand to as large as a golf ball, the occurrence whose in the human is well known, although its pathogenesis is not well understood. According to literature, a number of biomaterials, such as collagen, blood vessel walls, DNA, RNA etc., are found to possess the property of electrets which is an electric analogue of a permanent magnet having the capability to retain quasipermanently, an induced polarization. In order to understand about the occurrence and the physical properties of stone formation in the human tissues, the study of its electret behaviour and conductivity becomes imperative which implies the fact of indulging in its growth inhibition, if their deposition is identified using scans. Thus, in this paper, in order to understand the mechanism of growth of these nephrolithiasis, we enumerated the electrical behaviour of the stone, by using the XRD (X-Ray Diffraction) analysis after their collection from different patient in and around the region and subsequently the dielectric constant of the stone was interpreted.
