Development of a scoring system from noncontrast computerized tomography measurements to improve the selection of upper ureteral stone for extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy.


PURPOSE We investigated the role of noncontrast computerized tomography in predicting the treatment outcome of shock wave lithotripsy on upper ureteral stones to formulate a clinical algorithm to facilitate clinical management. MATERIALS AND METHODS Adult patients with upper ureteral stones confirmed by noncontrast computerized tomography and scheduled… (More)
