Customer Question

I recently took a abdominal and real sonogram. It shows everything is fine except for a 0.6cm non shadowing echnogenic focus, most probably representing a stone. No renal masses etc. everything else is fine. All blood work is fine, but radiologist suggest ct scan to be sure. In last few years, I have had many MRIs, ct scans, iodine uptake etc. do I really need to expose myself to more radiation, or can i just wait 6 months and have another sonogram. Isnt that very small?

Hello this is Dr. Salama MD,

What was the reason for the sonogram to begin with?
