Ureteral colic is a common diagnosis in the emergency department. The diagnosis of renal colic can be made via urinalysis, ultrasound, and/or computed tomography. Urinalysis has an 85% sensitivity for detecting hematuria in patients with renal colic. We seek to characterize ureteral stones in patients without hematuria to determine the percentage of stones that are obstructing and/or clinically significant (causing hydronephrosis).
