Comparative Study between Spiral computed Tomography and Ultrasound in Detecting Urolithiasis

Abstract

The study was cross sectional study of spiral computed tomography and ultrasound in

detecting urolithisiasis. This study was conducted in Khartoum state at (Alturky

Diagnostic Center, Doctors clinic hospital and Al-Rebat university hospital), from

December 2016 to January 2017.

The problem of study was confusion in detecting stones in computed tomography and

ultrasound. The study was aimed to demonstrate the diagnostic value of computed

tomography in diagnosing presence and absence of urolithisiasis and identifying

whether computed tomography and ultrasound can lead to accurate diagnosis of

urolithiasis and compare between computed tomography and ultrasound in detection of

urolithiasis.

The data was collected from 100 patients classified and analyzed using SPSS and the

study found that males are more affected by urolithiasis than females(71-

20)respectively, so the age group between(49-60) are more exposed to urolithiasis and

most of the cases have single stone (54 patients). The study concluded that the presence

of urolithiasis in kidney is detected by both modalities in higher frequency than singular

modality and the presence of urolithiasis in bladder is better detected by computer

tomography.

The presence of urolithiasis in smallest valid of size (˂ 5mm) is better detected by

ultrasound, the presence of urolithiasis in veiled (˃ 1cm- 3cm) is better detected by

computed tomography and the presence of urolithiasis in veiled (˃ 3cm- 5 cm) is better

detected by computed tomography.

The study recommended that all the people to drink plenty of water to driven

dehydration specially who work under the sun light.
