Re: Kidney stone issues... 3 weeks and counting! HELP

I am presently going through this same thing and am a Nurse. I had a CT which revealed a 3-4 mm stone, then later a ultrasound which did not show a stone. Three weeks later another CT which revealed the stone is still there. Short Answer- Ultrasound can miss a stone and is not the best screening tool. A CT is the preferred methodology. However, since CT has higher radiation they do not like to use this frequently. Only thing is- is that CT scans are very expensive! I am guessing the urologist may have you have another CT and if it still there offer to just watch it or medically intervention to remove the stone. I know exactly what you are going through and wish you the best!!! hope this information helps!
