Abstract
Background: Renal stones are common in today’s world. The present study was conducted to determine renal stone with USG. Materials & Methods: The present study was conducted on 124 cases of renal stones diagnosed with USG of both genders. In all patients, USG Scan with Aloka SSD-500 with frequency convex probe, and Honda SSD-500 with frequency (3.5 MHz) convex probe was taken. The size and location of all renal stones were evaluated. Results: Out of 124 patients, males were 84 and females were 60. Maximum stones were in size of 4-10 mm (48) followed by >10 mm (34), 2-4 mm (22) and <2 mm (20). The difference was non- significant (P> 0.05). Maximum stones were present in lower calyx (56) followed by middle calyx (30), pelvis (21) and upper calyx (17). The difference was significant (P< 0.05). Conclusion: Authors found that most of the stones were of size 4-10 mm and maximum were present in lower calyx.
