Gap B9: What is the frequency of post-flight stone formation; the incidence and types of stones; and the time course of stone formation? How does stone formation correlate with food intake and hydration status?

Responsible Element: Exploration Medical Capability (ExMC)
Status: Closed
Closure Rationale

Sufficient knowledge exists with respect to understanding the renal stone formation process in spaceflight. Computational models that predict the likelihood of renal stone formation during spaceflight have been developed and validated. ExMC has no plans for new research or work on this gap.
