Summary of "In Vivo Analysis of Urinary Stones With Dual-Energy Computed Tomography."

Formation mechanisms and treatment of the urinary stones are different, depending on their chemical structure. Therefore, determining the stone type plays a key role in planning treatment and preventive measures. Computed tomography (CT), with the use of dual-energy technology in recent years, has made it possible to do in vivo analysis of urinary stones. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the diagnostic efficacy of dual-energy CT (DECT) and compare its results with in vitro analysis, which is accepted as a gold standard for analysis of urinary stones.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Stones in the URINARY BLADDER; also known as vesical calculi, bladder stones, or cystoliths.

Formation of stones in any part of the URINARY TRACT, usually in the KIDNEY; URINARY BLADDER; or the URETER.

A technique for analysis of the chemical composition of molecules. A substance is bombarded with monochromatic ELECTRONS. Some of the electrons passing through the specimen will lose energy when they ionize inner shell electrons of the atoms in the specimen. The energy loss is element dependent. Analysis of the energy loss spectrum reveals the elemental composition of a specimen. ENERGY-FILTERED TRANSMISSION ELECTRON MICROSCOPY is a type of electron energy loss spectroscopy carried out in electron microscopes specially outfitted to analyze the spectrum of electron energy loss.

Low-density crystals or stones in any part of the URINARY TRACT. Their chemical compositions often include CALCIUM OXALATE, magnesium ammonium phosphate (struvite), CYSTINE, or URIC ACID.

A method of producing a high-quality scan by digitizing and subtracting the images produced by high- and low-energy x-rays.
