The values determined for this specimen are placed on the chart to indicate the approximate risk associated with the particular concentrations. Increased risk is to the right of center; decreased risk, to the left. Relative supersaturation calculated for calcium oxalate, calcium hydrogen phosphate (brushite) and uric acid calculi is displayed. Relative risk increases from the middle to the right side of this chart.
