Since the revolution in surgical treatment of kidney stones brought about by non-invasive extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) in the 1980s, stone therapy has changed substantially. Today, the focus is on personalized stone management, making it possible to tailor urolithiasis treatment to each patient's specific requirements and needs. For these applications, STORZ MEDICAL offers its customers innovative solutions and a bespoke product portfolio. The electromagnetic cylindrical source developed by STORZ MEDICAL is the "heart" of our lithotripters. It enables in-line X-ray or ultrasound imaging to provide the most accurate in-situ localization of the concrements.

Multifunctionality, especially in terms of endourological procedures and diagnostic X-ray imaging, is the key feature of the system concept. The dynamic 43 cm x 43 cm X-ray flat-panel detector enables imaging of the entire genitourinary tract in a single image. The detector can be conveniently moved into over-table or under-table position.
MODULITH® SLX-F2 »FD21« is equipped with a 21 cm x 21 cm X-ray flat-panel detector. It is designed for use as a permanently installed system for hospitals with high ESWL patient volumes. A central intuitive control solution, an extensive patient database and the necessary network interfaces are the system's key benefits for efficient patient management in daily clinical practice.
MODULITH® SLK »inline« is a mobile lithotripter with on-board patient table for maximum flexibility.

A variety of mobile C-arcs from different manufacturers can be used for X-ray localization.
