Distal right ureteric calculus

Case contributed by Dr Henry Knipe

Patient Data

Age: 30 years
Gender: Female
X-ray
Calcification projects in the pelvis, to the right of midline, at the level of the ischial tuberosity.

Distal right ureteric stone with mild right hydronephrosis. 

Case Discussion

CT is far more sensitive than plain films for detection of ureteric calculi. However, if a stone is radiopaque and large enough, plain films are useful to follow stone progress.
