Kidney Stone Decision Engine

Information
Kidney stones can cause intense pain by obstructing the urinary tract. Shockwave lithotripsy (SWL) and laser ureteroscopy (URS) are two treatment interventions employed to fragment stones into small pieces (<=4mm), facilitating their natural passage out of the body. This Decision Engine program recommends the optimal treatment option for patients by analyzing their characteristics relative to 17,242 patient treatments [pdf]. Please note that the predictions are for informational purposes and not a substitute for professional medical advice.
