Re: Diagnosing Stones


Yet another in many websites that can detect cholesterol stones and very descriptive on this is done. it seems that cholesterol stones are quite easy to detect!

http://www.amershamhealth.com/medcyclopaedia/medical/volume%20IV%201/CHOLECYSTOLITHIASIS.ASP

"Cholesterol stones usually have an attenuation value that is lower than bile and are visible on CT as hypoattenuating structures. The "Mercedes-Benz" sign is a triradiate central fissure of the stone and is particularly well displayed on CT as a hypoattenuating triradiate figure. MRI (Fig.4) and MRCP are able to visualize Gallstones reliably"

and from another site:

Discussion

It is evident from this study that cholesterol Gallstones do not exhibit a uniform sonographic appearance, but have a variety of distinct patterns. The traditional description of a gallstone is that of an echogenic focus with posterior acoustic shadowing [2,3]. The character of the shadowing helps us categorize cholesterol stones into distinct sub-types. Tsuchiya et al [7] described three sub-types of sonographic morphology (namely comet, half moon and crescent). Other workers have described two additional sonographic patterns, namely sonolucent and irregular [8,9]. The description of these patterns is akin to our classification of full moon and others, respectively.
