Accuracy of sonography for detecting renal stone: comparison with computed tomography
It was determined the diagnostic accuracy values of sonography in the detection of renal
stones using CT as the gold standard. In addition, we correlated the accuracy of sonography with
stone size, the kidney affected and body mass index (BMI).
Fifty patients were introduced in study and was performed sonographic examinations
and after sonographic examinations to confirm diagnosis was performed CT scan examinations.
CT scans were evaluated by one radiologists, and the diagnosis was made by consensus. We
compared the sonograms and CT scans and the sonographic detection of stones in the left and
right kidneys. All sonographic findings were correlated with the BMI groups.
Accuracy of sonography for detection of stones in the kidney as the calculation of up to 1
cm was 71% ,at 1-2 cm in size was 98.8%, and larger than 2 cm was 100% respectively for left
kidney up to 1 cm 54.5%, 88.2% from 1-2 cm and 2 cm greater than 90.9%.
Sonography is of limited value for detecting renal stones. The sonographic detection of a renal
stone is dependent on the side of localization in the kidney and of BMI.
