The microscopic analysis of the urine sediment Welcome!
Online since 1997
This site is renewing! We are presenting here an initial version on this site on the microscopical analysis of the urine sediment under this new format. Further modifications are planifies for a near future.
This site is using Cabel's FancyZoom 1,1 (http://www.cabel.name/2008/02/fancyzoom-10.html) . In order to work properly, pages must be fully loaded before using the zoom action. If the zoom is used before the end, this will open on a regular image window. To leave this page, one has to get back using the back arrow. There is a few places where a zoom user has to be patient, especially with the animations.

It is with pleasure that I invite you to browse on this site dedicated to the microscopic examination of urine. You can leave, your messages at the following E-mail address:
The microscopical examination of urine is not an easy job and requires particular abilities. The identification of elements is not always a straitforward task. Quality results rely on the operator's knowledge and judgment. In urinary microscopy, certainty is not the rule. Consequently, the result is often an opinion that depends on the skill of the examiner. This site offers a practical opportunity to actualize one's knowledge on the urinary sediment.
Publication on the Internet is an interesting solution to the high cost of color printing and distribution, specially with a subject like the urinary sediment. With the Internet, it is possible to have a worldwide diffusion of a document with color pictures, without the usual production cost; all you need is work.
Writing for a printed document is quite different from writing
for web viewing. We have limited the text to the essential so
that on-screen reading remains acceptable. In the main documents,
we are using reduced size pictures to facilitate loading but,
with a click on the blue framed images, one can access to the
normal size picture as well as a collection of the same elements.
In time, we hope to be able to increase the image bank. For those
"allergic" to on-screen reading, it is possible to
print the active page. The biggest document makes only six
The HTML language, especially JAVA scripting, allows many different possibilities like animation and sound. But some of these features are of very little adds in the scope of this site. For the moment, animation and other visual effects are used with parcimony.
