  author={Alison J. Bradley and P. Nagaraja Rao},
Imaging for stones covers the techniques available and evaluates the optimal techniques for the diagnosis of stone disease. This is mainly by multidetector computed tomography (MDCT), but the roles of intravenous urography (IVU), ultrasound (US), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), fluoroscopic studies, and isotope renography are also discussed. Thin-section MDCT allows three-dimensional (3D) postprocessing with multiplanar reconstruction, thus providing an accurate assessment of stone burden and… CONTINUE READING
