Caption

Lithotripsy treatment. Patient receiving lithotripsy treatment for kidney stones. Lithotripsy is a non-invasive technique that uses focused ultrasonic sound waves to break up hard deposits in the body, while leaving surrounding tissues unharmed. An X-ray of the treatment area is seen on the monitor at centre right. This allows fine targetting of the sound waves. Kidney stones are hard deposits of urine salts that can form inside the kidneys, causing pain, urine retention and kidney damage. Once the stone has been pulverised by lithotripsy, the remaining dust is passed in the urine.
