A calcified blood clot in the urinary tract means that you had blood in the urine drainage system of the kidney, and some of the blood had calcium deposit collected on it as time went by.  This is essentially how a kidney stone can normally form with calcium deposits collecting over time.  Whether this is a pure kidney stone or calcified clot, the treatment is the same-try to pass it if it is small enough, or remove it with a camera if it does not pass.  Once the stone is removed, it can be evaluated closely to see exactly what the composition is.
