Answer
Hello, Nitin.

The arrow in your picture is in the urinary bladder. Following the arrow toward the center of the image, you'll see a dark area surrounded by an irregular shaped gray ring. This is a cross-section of your bowel. Within your bowel, you'll see a small white dot. That's what a stone would look like, but it is in the bowel, so this would not be a kidney stone.

It's entirely possible that you passed a 5mm stone through your urine without knowing it.

Hope this helps,
Delia
