How extracorporeal lithotripsy works
The stone is located through an X-ray system and is visible to the doctor throughout the procedure.
Extracorporeal lithotripsy is achieved by the use of an ultrasonic system that produces shock waves, which are guided with great precision into the center of the stone, resulting in complete disintegration.
The stone is located through an x-ray machine and is visible to the doctor throughout the procedure.
The machine produces shock waves that flow into the stone and break it into smaller pieces until it becomes sand and discharged from the body with the normal urinalysis process.
