Kidney stones
I just git the result of my ct scan for both sides of my kidneys and the impression is Bilateral nephrocalcinosis and bilateral microlithiases. Pyramidal calcifications are seen bilarerally with multiple calyceal lithiasis in both kidneys rangin from 2mm to 5mm mean attenuation value of approxumately +151 HU to +305 HU. A well defined thin-walled hypodense cystic focus is seen lower pole cortex of the right kidney measuring approximately 1.0 × 1.0 cm. Both kidneys appear normal.in size and morphology. Cortimedullary differentiation is intact. No hydronephrosis is noted. My urologist said it wud be better if he will remove it thru shockwave . Cant this stines be remove thru medications first? Tnx
