Abstract

Imaging of the urinary tract with current computed tomography (CT) technology allows for the rapid detection of both symptomatic and asymptomatic stone disease. Unenhanced CT is more accurate and can be obtained more rapidly than intravenous urogram and has become the imaging modality of choice for the evaluation of nephrolithiasis.
