New Imaging Techniques in the Management of Stone Disease

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Recent advances in computed tomography, X-ray-based imaging, and ultrasonography have improved the accuracy of urinary stone detection and differentiation of stone composition while minimizing radiation exposure. Dual-energy computed tomography and digital tomosynthesis show promise in predicting mineral composition to optimize medical and surgical therapy. Electromagnetic tracking may enhance the use of ultrasonography to achieve percutaneous renal access for nephrolithotomy. This article reviews innovations in imaging technology in the contemporary management of urinary stone disease.
