1. The primary outcome of the STONE PLUS article was
Record review at 90 days
Symptomatic ureteral stone
Incidental (non acute) alternative finding on CT
2. Point of care Renal ultrasound in a limited fashion entails
Determining presence and grade of hydronephrosis
Determining presence of findings of cancer
Determining presence of cystic renal lesions
Determining vascular flow
Which ultrasound finding improved specificity in low to moderate risk patients?
Mild hydronephrosis found on bedside ultrasound
Moderate hydronephrosis found on bedside ultrasound
Moderate to severe hydronephrosis found on bedside ultrasound
Severe hydronephrosis found on bedside ultrasound
For those patients at high risk for suspected renal stone
Bedside ultrasound impacted the likelihood of urologic intervention and likelihood of symptomatic stone
Moderate hydronephrosis was predictive of those in need of urologic intervention
Presence or absence of hydronephrosis did not alter likelihood of symptomatic stone or need for urologic intervention.
Mild hydronephrosis was associated with non intervention and less likelihood of symptomatic stone needing admission
For moderate or greater hydronephrosis ultrasound displayed the following test characteristics for those patients requiring urologic intervention
Bedside ultrasound was more sensitive and less specific
Bedside ultrasound was less sensitive and more specific
Bedside ultrasound was equally sensitive and specific
Bedside ultrasound was neither sensitive nor specific
