Abstract

Pediatric urolithiasis is on the rise globally and incidence rates have risen by 6-10% annually over the past couple of decades. Given the increasing incidence, high likelihood of recurrence, and long life expectancy of children, the use of ionizing radiation in the diagnosis, management, and follow up of pediatric urolithiasis has been scrutinized recently and many institutions and organizations have emphasized the use of non-ionizing imaging modality such as ultrasound. This review examines the use of ultrasound in the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric urolithiasis. Specifically, the role of ultrasound in shockwave lithotripsy, percutaneous nephrolithotomy, and, more recently, ureteroscopy will be examined.

Only a short paragraph with one reference deals with sonographic targeting of stones for ESWL.
