Assistant Professor of Clinical Urology; Clinical Vice Chair, Department of Urology
The Yale Stone Research Team, which is a multidisciplinary collaboration between urology, emergency medicine, biostatistics, and radiology, has been leading efforts to better manage patients who present with flank pain, identifying patients who need imaging, and in reducing radiation exposure for patients presenting with kidney stones who are often subjected to multiple and sometimes high dose CT scans. As a result of its implementation of its unique STONE Score, Yale has been able to filter patients to ultra low-dose CT scans, which provide nearly the same diagnosis as patients given the standard scan.
Our multidisciplinary team consists of urology, nephrology, and dietary experts, who work with our patients to help reduce future kidney stones. In fact, once someone has formed a kidney stone, odds increase to 50-50 that another will develop within the next ten years. We are dedicated to working with patients to make that probability more favorable to the patient.
