Identification of kidney stones and their morphologic characterization helps provide targeted therapy in the shortest possible time.
- Urinary stones can be accurately characterized, significantly improving the treatment path for the patient as certain types of stones are resistant to shockwave lithotripsy. In addition, uric acid stones can be treated with oral medication rather than surgical extraction or shockwave lithotripsy
- Simple and reliable differentiation of uric acid versus non-uric acid stones can avoid invasive interventional urinary procedures for stone removal or external shockwave lithotripsy - both of which are expensive and may result in renal hemorrhage, fibrosis or hypertension, reduced renal function, or injury of renal tissue
- Improving workflow by avoiding lengthy and painful metabolic workup for patients with uric acid stones
