Effects of Bariatric Surgery on Urolithiasis Risk and Renal Function

CT imaging has quickly become the gold standard for evaluating patients suspected of having renal colic. Concern exists regarding possible over utilization of CT imaging and ionizing radiation exposure. We are involved in a multi-institutional study comparing the use of ultrasonography vs. CT imaging of patients suspected of having renal colic.
