The role of ultrasound scan for diagnosing ureteral stones did not show up on plain x ray and ivu(intravenous urography).
A man patient who hospitalised because of renal colic pain on the left side. But on plain X ray even on ivu (intravenous urography) films we could not investigate any stone at all. However on ultrasound scan there was a stone at the end of left ureter. The images were taken by Dr Thanh Hoa who is a highly regarded specialist in radiology at my office.
